On 3:30pm - 4:30pm, 05 Aug 2012: Leslie joins the "Hell-House" Panel on Morality
Every year in the USA’s Bible belt, thousands of Christians engage in a unique form of community theatre via a modern-day morality play called Hell House.
Written by Baptist Minister, Pastor Keenan Roberts, the performance takes the form of a haunted house tour, with each room themed around a sin – such as drug-taking, pre-marital sex, abortion, drink-driving or homosexuality.
Designed to scare young audiences into confirming their commitment to Christianity, Hell House presents a black-and-white moral world where a wrong decision will send you to hell.
Performed by 40 community actors from Geelong and south-west Victoria, Back to Back Theatre will stage Hell House as a museum would exhibit a cultural or religious artefact.
Performances will run every ten minutes from 2pm on Sunday at the Arts House Meat Market, 5 Blackwood Street, North Melbourne.
The Morality panel – chaired by Peter Mares and with Leslie, Rev. John Depuche and Peter Sherlock – will start at 3:30pm and run for an hour.

The Book of Rachael What if the man you loved betrayed your brother? Two thousand years ago, as a charismatic young preacher from Nazareth was gathering followers among the people of Galilee, his sister swept floors and dreamed of learning to read.
What, No Baby? takes us on journey into the lives of contemporary women who plan to have it all - marriage, motherhood and work - yet have been derailed by reluctant men, insatiably demanding jobs and ever-climbing expectations of what it takes to be a "good" mother.
