The Godfather of Gaudiness will soon be back on our shores, bringing with him an abundance of tales that you probably wouldn't want to recount to your mother over a Sunday roast.
If you've ever snuggled under a doona to watch Hairspray, Cry-Baby or Serial Mom, you've experienced a taste of the kookiness the 'Pope of Trash', director John Waters has to offer. His one-man show This Filthy World Vol. 2 will cover his childhood, fashion absurdity, exploitation films and a whole bunch more, and having chatted to the clever fella before (way back in issue 43), we can vouch for the fact that you're in for a treat.
Fancy witnessing that infamous pencil 'tache in person? We've got a double pass to give away to each show in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. To win, just pop an email here with your name and address, and remember to tell us why you're dying to head along.
Sunday March 9th – Sydney Opera House, Sydney
Monday March 10th – Hamer Hall, Melbourne
Thursday March 6th – Elder Hall, Adelaide (part of the Adelaide Festival)
