Equal parts historical and hysterical, lose yourself in the company of sailors, barmaids and bootleggers in this darkly comic cabaret. "Not only vocally sublime but a stroke of comedy genius" (TheatrePress), its critically acclaimed stars Maeve Marsden and Libby Wood return to the U.K. after playing to sold out crowds in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Edinburgh and across Australia. Mother's Ruinis a raucous journey through 18th Century London, a few New York speakeasies, the Australian bush and the jungles of Peru.

 Discover a little more about your favourite drop, with this mixed up musical history lesson delivered with dry wit and "almost symbiotic harmonies" (Adelaide Advertiser). With music originally performed by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Martha Wainwright, Tom Waits, The Pretenders, Jessie J and more, Mother’s Ruinmoves from misery to vaudeville in a moment, intertwining excess and prohibition, history and (re)invention.

View Seating Plan

All shows at London Wonderground take place in our magnificent performance venue, the Paradiso Spiegeltent. Originally built in Belgium in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, these circular, mirrored tents are wonderfully atmospheric and authentic.

The Spiegeltent is fully accessible to wheelchairs with ramped access throughout the site. We would advise patrons with mobility issues to allow extra time to get to the tent and make yourself known to a member of staff upon arrival.
