If a stranger with a cello shows up in a rainstorm claiming to be your husband's wife, do you let her in? Agoraphobic artist Althea Emory does, and receives a mysterious big red envelope for her trouble. She’s also treated to Bea Lamartino’s wacky wordplay, swordplay, Egyptiana, food fights, melt-downs, and very strange charades. DENIAL (is not a river in Egypt) is a loopy dark comedy about love, loss, and embalming (yes, onstage, and even funnier than it is gross – which it totally is). DENIAL… is also about how women – especially when they have reasons not to – help each other.
