Gin-soaked Cabaret Pours Into HotHouse

Fresh off the plane from a sell-out tour of the UK, Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood take us on a sublime musical journey through the history of ‘mother’s ruin’, aka gin.

Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret About Gin features music originally performed by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Martha Wainwright, The Popes, The Pretenders and more in a raucous show that tells the tale of gin through stories and song.

Quench your thirst for knowledge with a cabaret performance – with a twist.

HotHouse is thrilled to welcome Public House as Production Partner for Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret About Gin and, as a result – for one week only – our historic Hume Bank Butter Factory Theatre will be transformed by Public House into a pop-up gin joint: Molly Fink Bar.

Speaking about the experience local audiences will have, Artistic Director Lyn Wallis said “Mother’s Ruin at the Hume Bank Butter Factory Theatre will be a sultry, immersive cabaret experience. It’s a gorgeous show, but we’re also going to have a lot of fun transforming the venue.”

Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret About Gin plays at the Hume Bank Butter Factory Theatre 21-26 May. Tickets are on sale now with 35% off for groups of ten or more.
