Squeeze My Cans—PLATFORM Centre

Scientology: L. Ron Hubbard writes a science fiction novel. Then by a series of unbelievable circumstances, a cultish hoard embraces it as their religion. They recruit weak-minded celebrities and those celebrities (Tom Cruise, John Travolta for two) give it legitimacy.

As a thriving cult, scientology victimises average, normal people and somehow seduces them to give up their freedom and their souls—oh, and all their money. How does this happen?

Cathy Schenkelberg tells a gripping story of how she got into this trap, how she finally got out—and what it cost her (you wouldn’t believe it). If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind the doors of Scientology and what lies at the promised land, you must see this show. You even learn the meaning behind the volcano on the cover of Hubbard’s novel. It’s an incredible story.
