Ros Ford - Gin Craze


Ros Ford is playing Suki in a workshop of Gin Craze, produced by the Royal and Derngate.

Gin Craze, by April De Angelis and Lucy Rivers, is a raucous musical satire set in the 18th century when the average Briton drank 1½ litres of gin a day, and drunken women were rounded up and locked in underground cells until they sobered up. Two lovers, each with hidden secrets, struggle to prosper as gin hawkers. With disorder on every street corner, panic spreads among the upper classes who look to their tipsy Queen to restore order. Come down to the gin dive and let our irreverent balladeers lead you through the joyous excess of Hogarth’s Britain.
