John Waters
Office of the Vice Provost for the Arts

November 6, 2009
4:30 pm

"This Filthy World." Actor, writer, visual artist and filmmaker crowned the "Pope of Trash", Waters brings the underground sensibility to the cultural mainstream with such films as Pink Flamingos, Serial Mom and Hairspray. This joyously devious one-man show celebrates his film career, early negative influences and fascination with true crime, fashion lunacy, exploitation films and contemporary art world extremes. A call to arms for connoisseurs of trash across grounds!

The Imaginary Invalid
By Molière
Directed by Colleen Kelly
Department of Drama

November 12-14, 17-21
8 pm, Helms Theatre

If you think today's debate over health care is confusing, wait until you see it through the wide and winking eyes of Molière and his tale of a hopeless hypochondriac whose "habit" is supported by all manners of medical practitioners. So when it comes time to marry off his daughter, is it any surprise that he sees it as the ultimate chance to gain a doctor for a son?
