Roxanne Spence

Designer South Lanarkshire

I am just starting my career into the theatre industry, with a focus on working as a set designer, prop maker and backstage worker. I am based in South Scotland and graduated from the University of York with a degree in Theatre; Writing, Directing and Performance, where I focused on production design, and did a dissertation on Agatha Christie's self-adaptations.

I am interested in working in immersive, outdoor and classic theatre structures, and in past the two years I've realised I really like classic horror theatre, although I'll always be interested in other genres.
