S2: Jack and Jill, The Poisoners of London - Steampunk Theatre Show and Bar




New meetup for this show - if you RSVP'd for it when it was announced before it was postponed, you'll have to RSVP separately now :)

NOTE: You must purchase your own tickets.

To help us identify each other, please wear or carry a red rose (real or fake).

I have set the meetup from 7pm (they haven't detailed the time of the show on any of the websites that I can see) but the bar is open from 5pm so any time from then!



Melbourne's quirkiest and most colourfully kitsch cabaret venue. A new place to get dressed up in fabulous attire, enjoy a show, have a few drinks and toast your inner psychopath. You game? Get dressed up in your most murderously fabulous attire and come spend a night in Melbourne's quirkiest cabaret venue The Butterfly Club! Enjoy few specialty cocktails from the bar and watch a bloodthirsty little theatre show about love and the art of poisoning. But beware, each sip might be your last...


If you are going to attend, you must purchase your own ticket/s before the event. Note: I have set he meetup for the Friday night show. Book early to avoid missing out on tickets as this show has a limited season and is lively to be popular!

"Jack and Jill went up the hill to see who poisoned faster, to relish thrills of subtle kills and crown themselves the master..."

A delightfully gruesome little theatre show about the art of poisoning at the turn of the century, featuring an irreverently sinister swathe of Melbourne’s most subversive cabaret performers.

'Jack and Jill: The Poisoners of London' is the torrid tale of two high class serial killers romancing their way through the seedy underbelly of Victorian London. Nothing says ‘Love’ like a pile of dead bodies.


Lavish attire is greatly appreciated, but not mandatory. Creative costumes encouraged! Grifters, Madams, Assassins, Gentlemen of Fortune, Poets, Gamblers, Mad Scientists, Dandies, Dappers, Fashionistas, Neo-Victorians and Steampunkers are all very welcome! You can dress in costume or just in formal wear.
