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.
