The deep dive into the history of Wonder Woman will be rescheduled to an upcoming season.
It is with great disappointment that the Know Theatre of Cincinnati announces the indefinite postponement of their production of Carson Kreitzer’s LASSO OF TRUTH.
The production, which was slated to open April 17, was to be directed by the Know’s Associate Artistic Director, Tamara Winters, and told two interweaving stories about the pop-culture phenomenon that is Wonder Woman: one recounted the lives of her original inventor and the two women he loved, both of whom served as inspiration for the character, and the other followed a modern-day fan struggling to reconcile her progressive sensibilities against her lifelong love for Wonder Woman, even as she discovers how the character was shaped by a culture of shame and secrecy.
“This is a play that’s been on our radar for a few years, and we were all extremely excited to produce it,” said Producing Artistic Director Andrew J. Hungerford. “Our goal is to make space for it as we schedule our upcoming seasons.”
The Know previously had to bring an early close to its Rolling World Premiere of ALABASTER, by Audrey Cefaly, which it transferred to a limited-run, highly successful video-on-demand. As a part of the Know’s Know-to-Go brand, the Know is in the process of rolling out ways to experience its signature theatrical storytelling at a distance, through streaming filmed productions, audio plays, and performance-based livestreams of tabletop role-playing games.
Audiences can always keep up with the Know’s programming by visiting knowtheatre.com or visiting the theatre on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
