Roxana

About Roxana

Wife, mistress, mother, opportunist, friend. The life of Roxana and her maid Amy is as scandalous an adventure as you could find and a morality tale like no other. Bringing Daniel Defoe’s 1724 novel and its surprisingly contemporary debates on marriage, wealth, sexuality and autonomy to the stage, this is a provocative re-telling of the journey of a woman and her maid as they grapple with the world and the choices they have to make. Originally written for the stage, this version of Roxana will be a unique theatre-film hybrid experience filmed in Paisley.

Once booked, we will email you a direct link to view Roxana which will be available from 3pm on the 26th of July until the 31st of July 2021.

Directed by Shilpa T-Hyland and written by Laurie Motherwell, Roxana is a co-production with Renfrewshire Leisure Arts and Museums, the Paisley Book Festival and is made possible with support from Creative Scotland.

For full information about the production and details about the cast and creative team please visit www.paisleybookfest.com.
