After Boston Marriage transferred from the Donmar Warehouse to the New Ambassadors (now known as the Ambassadors) theatre, Zoe and her co-star Anna Chancellor commented very briefly on the production for the Olivier Awards.  Boston Marriage received an Olivier award nomination for Best Play, while ZoŽ was nominated for Best Actress, and Lyndsey Marshal for Best Newcomer.  Clive Anderson hosted the awards ceremony.

Clive Anderson:  Over at the Donmar, Lyndsey Marshal, ZoŽ Wanamaker and Anna Chancellor plunged into David Mamet's Boston Marriage; and the show transferred to the New Ambassadors later in the year.

Zoe Wanamaker:  'Boston marriage' is a name that came from a Henry James novel, The Bostonians, which really describes two women co-habiting together, not necessarily -

Anna Chancellor:  In a sexual relationship.
