Does your favourite tipple make you want to break out in song? Whatever you just answered, the popularity of drunken karaoke attests otherwise. And, so does Mother's Ruin: A Cabaret About Gin — which tells you what it's about and why it should grab your attention right there in its moniker.
On Brisbane Festival's lineup across September 18–22, this ode to everyone's favourite juniper spirits will turn La Boite's Roundhouse Theatre into a gin joint, all thanks to performers Maeve Marsden, Libby Wood and Jeremy Brennan, plus the folks at Milke. Discover just where gin has been in a musical show that doubles as a boozy history lesson, all to tunes by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Martha Wainwright, Tom Waits, The Pretenders, Sia and Jessie J.
