COMMON GROUND THEATRE—Psychologist William Moulton Marston helped develop the polygraph. Then he invented Wonder Woman. In 1941, he called the comic book character "psychological propaganda" for a "new type of woman who should ... rule the world," basing her on both his wife, Elizabeth, and their polyamorous companion, Olive Byrne. The vignettes in Summer Sisters' third annual devised production explore "the idea of the modern woman as a superwoman," according to co-founder Rachel Klem. Twelve theater artists consider heroes, villains, truth and justice, "kicking ass and looking good while doing it." Klem and Tamara Kissane direct a cast including Hazel Edmond, J Evarts and Dierdre Shipman. 8 p.m., $15, 4815-B Hillsborough Road, Durham, 919-384-7817, www.cgtheatre.com. Byron Woods
