Catie Coleman: How did you get interested in Wonder Woman’s creator?
Carson Kreitzer: A different play I was working on just happened to involve a polygraph, and while researching the lie detector, I discovered the Wonder Woman connection. It just became a landslide of information all about the polyamory and the bondage, the two women in his life living together after his death and raising his children together in the 50s, which is the most conformist time to have this unusual little family.
Wonder Woman was so important to me growing up, I came to her through the tv show. Getting to see Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman was just incredibly important and a huge part of my childhood identity. Finding out that Wonder Woman came from this place of bondage was initially really distressing, and then I took another look at the costume with the boots and the bustier and realized, oh god, how did I not realize all the connections?
