Hot Gin Punch


feat. Mother’s Ruin

Celebrate the wonders of gin at this juniper-fueled cabaret extravaganza. Join us for a party, a show, cocktails and mayhem, as we raise funds to take our Australian-made cabaret, Mother’s Ruin, on its first international tour to the UK. Hitting the stage, we’ll perform songs about gin and songs you didn’t know were about gin til we got our hands on them. With live music, dancing, gin-themed snacks, parlour games, a costume competition and a few surprises, Hot Gin Punch will warm up your winter and transform Giant Dwarf into the speakeasy of your dreams.

Presented in partnership with Four Pillars Gin, all audience members will get a free G&T on arrival, with Four Pillars aged negronis on sale throughout the night.

Remember the night with happy snaps from a photoboothMothers_Ruin_web-4 staffed by Patrick Boland; his portrait ‘The Gin Soaked Effervescence of Libby and Maeve’ was a finalist in the National Photographic Portrait Prize.

Mother’s Ruin: A Cabaret about Gin has performed to sold out houses and critical acclaim at Sydney Festival, Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Festival of Voices, Fringe World Perth, Hobart Spiegeltent and Wollongong Spiegeltent.


“Blisteringly entertaining” – Daily Review
“Not only vocally sublime but a stroke of comedy genius” – Theatre Press
