Legendary filmmaker, writer and shock auteur supreme, John Waters makes his Brisbane debut with his devious one-man show.
America’s royal raconteur and director of cult film classics such as Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, Cry Baby and Polyester, Waters is famous and infamous as ‘The Pope of Trash’.
In this wickedly funny monologue celebrating his joyously bad taste, Waters will regale with stories about his film origins and Hollywood career. Drawing on his childhood and early influences, with gay references and wry observations aplenty, Waters will divulge his innermost fascinations with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, and the extremes of the contemporary art world.
Elevating trash culture to something sublime, this is a call to arms to all ‘followers of filth’.
