We are in development for a new show, Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret about Gin, featuring Maeve and Libby from Lady Sings it Better with Musical Direction by Jeremy Brennan, Co-Created with Elly Clough (The Ginstress).
Equal parts hysterical and historical, we stumble and soar through songs of love and mothers, gin and secrets, winding our way through 18th Century London, New York speakeasies, colonial India and the jungles of Peru, via sailors and fallen women, bootleggers and master distillers. Explore the history of gin through story and song, all heaving harmonies and tipsy candour. With music originally performed by
Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, The Popes, Merle Haggard, Peggy Lee, Kurt Weil and more.
