"Not on Christmas! Not on Christmas!" - Mrs. Davenport

SUNDAY, DECEMBER 17. 7:00 PM. At Strange Matter. FREE.

Get in the Christmas spirit, John Waters-style! Prepare for John Waters LIVE at The Byrd Theatre! This trash cinema classic details the life journey of Dawn Davenport (Divine) from teen rebel to celebrity mass murderer, all of it caused by the fact her parents refuse to give her cha-cha heels for Christmas. Inspired by the sensation of the Manson Murders, and featuring one of Divine's most iconic performances, FEMALE TROUBLE is a one-of-a-kind cinema blast and an absolutely prescient commentary about the corrosive nature of celebrity.

Rated X. Presented by Chop Suey Books and MOVIE CLUB Richmond, in anticipation of John Waters's LIVE APPEARANCE at The Byrd Theatre & Foundation on December 20, 2017, where he will perform "A John Waters Christmas."
