This Filthy World - John Waters


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.

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.

This performance is presented as part of SHOUT Festival of Queer Arts and Culture, supported by Arts Council England. To find out more about SHOUT and the festival line-up visit
