Like a wayward Santa for the Christmas-obsessed, John Waters will cruise into town with his sleigh full of sticks and stones, spreading yuletide cheer and lunacy in his critically acclaimed one-man show.
Torn between capitalism and anarchy, the legendary filmmaker (Pink Flamingos, Hairspray, A Dirty Shame, etc), raconteur, and best-selling author feels “Christmas crazy” this year – “needy, greedy, horny for presents and filled with an unnatural desire to please.”
Waters’ rapid-fire monologue explores and explodes the traditional holiday rituals and traditions. He shares his religious fanaticism for Santa Claus, and an unhealthy love of real life holiday horror stories. Delving into his passion for lunatic exploitation, Christmas movies, and the unhealthy urge to remake all his own films into seasonal children’s classics, “The Pope of Trash” will provide a Joyeux Noël like no other.
