Ever wonder what it's like to audition to be Tom Cruise's girlfriend? The Church of Scientology had actress Cathy Schenkelberg for 14 years; it took another five years to leave them behind amidst harassing phone calls, late night visits from "outreach" staffers, social rejection and an expensive custody battle. She summons her courage for Squeeze My Cans, the horrifying and hilarious one-woman show, revisiting how she fell down that nutty rabbit hole and emerged again in one piece. Taught to be afraid of her body and interaction with others, she names her show as a rebellion against those lessons, finding herself again and dishing on the group that tried to control her identity. The tour de force solo performance includes stories and song at Chicago's Greenhouse Theater Center.
