Gin Craze!


drama

A booze soaked love ballad from the women of Gin Lane.

Two lovers, each with hidden secrets, struggle to prosper as gin hawkers. At a time in the 18th century when the average Briton drank 1.5 litres of gin every day, women were being locked up in cells to sober up and disorder was breaking out on every street corner, panic spreads among the upper classes who look to the magistrates, the Church and even their tipsy Queen to restore sobriety.

This raucous satire invites you down to the gin dive! Come on a journey through the joyous excesses of Hogarth’s Britain in this anarchic, ingenious and irreverent new musical.
