The Pope of Trash waxes lyrical on all things Yuletide in a darkly hilarious one man show.

Why See A John Waters Christmas?

Holiday & Christmas ShowsComedy Theatre

A filthy look at Christmas!

John Waters loves Christmas, and he wants you to know. The legendary cult-filmmaker takes to the stage with his traditional one man monologue, extolling the virtues of everyone's favorite holiday, from offering advice on Christmas films and music, to asking the important questions you've always wanted answered by the people's pervert, such as 'Is Santa erotic?'

There is more to John Waters than the thin, pencilled moustache and impeccable tailoring suggest. His films have earned a reputation for being transgressive in their celebration of freakery, he is a champion of the glamorous misfit, never compromising and or conforming. Some might say he's an acquired taste, yet there is nothing more enjoyable than watching someone enjoy themselves whilst peddling some hilarious smut-filled anecdotes, reminding us not to take the holidays too seriously!

'Twas The Night Before Christmas

A momentum and ebullience worthy of the Pixar era animate this world-premiere play, whose story line involves a heist, a duel with rapiers, some hip-hop, a squirt gun, a perilous airplane flight and an elf's stint as a secret agent.
