It isn’t very pretty what a town without pity can do! Things get rocky at the Gravel household when paranoid Peggy Gravel (Mink Stole) and her murderous maid Grizelda (Jean Hill) kill Peggy's husband. They escape from the law, only to wind up in the crazy town of Mortville, where Queen Carlotta (Edith Massey) presides over a sleazy collection of misfits, including the vivacious Muffy St. Jacques (Liz Renay). When the Queen disinherits her daughter, Princess Coo-Coo (Mary Vivian Pearce), the citizens of Mortville decide that it's time for a few changes! Desperate Living is “a work of true trash art" (Boston Phoenix) written and directed by John Waters (Hairspray, Polyester, Female Trouble, Pink Flamingos). No one under 18 admitted!
