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.
ASL Interpretation by Claire Alexander and Jenn Welna
Audio Description by Laurie Pape Hadley
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund, as well as the generosity of the Dramatists Guild Fund and the Venturous Fund of the Tides Foundation.
