Lock Up Your Mothers: Desperate Living

September 26, 2015 @ 9:00 pm - 10:35 pm

Neurotic urban housewife Peggy Gravel goes on the run with her maid Grizelda after the latter smothers Peggy’s husband Bosley to death. The two are arrested by a cross-dressing policeman, who gives them an ultimatum: go to jail or be exiled to Mortville, a squalid shantytown ruled by the evil Queen Carlotta and her treasonous daughter, Princess Coo-Coo. The pair choose Mortville and become embroiled in the attempts of the town’s motley crew of criminals, nudists, and sexual deviants to overthrow Carlotta. A comedy of the truly grotesque, this is one of John Waters’ filthiest!
