SHOUT Festival in association with Birmingham Hippodrome are beyond excited to bring a queer icon, a living legend, and the master of filth, John Waters to Birmingham for the very first time to celebrate 10 years of SHOUT in the city.
“Waters is one of bad behavior’s most likable champions.” – The Hollywood Reporter
John Waters’ one-man show is a ‘vaudeville’ act that celebrates the film career and obsessional tastes of the man William Burroughs once called ’The Pope of Trash’. Focusing in on Waters’ early negative artistic influences and his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy, and the extremes of the contemporary art world, this joyously devious monologue elevates all that is trashy in life into a call to arms to ‘filth followers’ everywhere.
“…a raconteur of the first order” – New York Times
“…his latest rapid-fire monologue is, much like the man himself, confronting, hilarious, addictive, insightful, educational and, most of all, not to be missed.” – Broadway World.com
