HOAL 2

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.

Supported by Creative Scotland.
