Lasso of Truth

Written by Carson Kreitzer
Directed by Leah Cooper 

Lasso 6x4 author

Produced by Workhaus Collective
in association with Walking Shadow Theatre Company

Who is Wonder Woman and where did she come from? Lasso of Truth explores the knotty origin story of our preeminent female superhero, created by William Marston, inventor of the first lie-detector machine. This smart, seductive, wild ride features the two women Marston lived with in a polyamorous relationship - both of whom inspired the famous character - plus a girl in search of answers about her childhood heroine, and a guy trying to hold on to his prized first issue.
