john_watersWe can’t think of a more fitting finale for our 10th birthday celebrations than an evening with one of our greatest queer icons: John Waters, live and in person!

Best known for cult films like Hairspray, Pink Flamingos and Cry Baby and for his work with drag legend Divine, Waters’ acclaimed one-man show celebrates the film career and obsessive tastes of the man William Burroughs once called ‘The Pope of Trash’.

Part lecture, part performance, This Filthy World focuses in on Waters’ early artistic influences and his fascination with true crime, exploitation films, fashion lunacy and the extremes of sexual politics. This joyous and devious monologue is a glorious rallying cry against the tyranny of good taste and serves as a call to arms for ‘filth followers’ everywhere!

Join us after the performance for OUTBURST’s 10th Birthday Party!
