Modest Predicament presents
History of a Life

Work In Progress

3rd October 2018


Wife, mistress, mother, opportunist, friend. The life of Roxana and her maid Amy is as scandalous an adventure as you could find. As Roxana traces the past through the echoes of her memory, you’ll find a morality tale like no other.

Bringing Daniel Defoe’s 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 grappled with the world and the choices they had to make.

Note: Contains adult themes and strong language. 

Written by Laurie Motherwell
Directed by Shilpa T-Hyland
Performed by Kim Allan, Esme Bayley and Ross Mann.
