Promo Image of Mothers Ruin Performer

Reviewer: Stephen M Hornby Mother’s Ruin returned to Contact for its Christmas special and provided the audience with a wonderful cornucopia of contrasts to usher in the festive season.

Mother’s Ruin, the chaotic queer cabaret that started four years ago at the dearly departed greenroom, now celebrates two years in its second home – ...

QC2013: Mother’s Ruin – Who’s Got The Max Factor? – Contact, Manchester

Reviewer: Peter Jacobs [rating:4] Mother’s Ruin is a cabaret-cum-variety collective that bring together a wide-range of established alternative cabaret artists with new and emerging North West artistes to create performance spectaculars that are new, edgy, experimental and diverse but presented in a format designed to entertain and be inclusive.
