News round-up: Such Rotten Luck, great photos and the Bardathon!

18 April 2017 23:06

Such Rotten Luck's welcome return

Thanks to BBC Radio 4 Extra, there's a rare chance to hear Ronald Hayman's witty comedy-drama Such Rotten Luck again. ZoŽ stars alongside Tim Pigott-Smith, who sadly died recently, in the series. It was first broadcast in 1989 and follows the struggles of a second-class writer and his long-suffering wife. The chemistry between ZoŽ and her co-star is brilliant, making every episode a real treat.

Such Rotten Luck's first episode, 'The Little Grey Man', airs on 20 April at 9:30am with further chances to listen at 4:30pm that afternoon and (for any real early birds!) 4:30am the following day.

Lovely photo with a canine chum

Over 20 years after Such Rotten Luck, ZoŽ and Tim Pigott-Smith featured as another married couple in Wodehouse in Exile (originally called An Innocent Abroad). In BBC Four's moving 2013 film about PG Wodehouse's wartime experiences, ZoŽ again plays the wife of a writer (although a rather more acclaimed one this time!).

Mary Tavy Dog Grooming recently shared this lovely photo of ZoŽ holding a cute Pekingese called Adam. ZoŽ believes it was taken during the making of the film. (You may remember that her character, Ethel, owns an adorable lapdog.)

Attending the National's Up Next gala

Last month, ZoŽ attended the National Theatre's biennial fundraising gala, Up Next, in London. She was photographed at the event in a chic, sparkly outfit. Other well-known special guests included Olivia Coleman, Lenny Henry and Penelope Wilton.

Up Next was a huge success, raising more than £1 million for the NT's Learning department. The money will help to improve young people's access to theatre and the other arts (a cause close to ZoŽ's heart).

Watching a record-breaking performance

Whatsonstage.com recently highlighted some of the greatest theatre-related world records, including the 'Bardathon', which ZoŽ visited during summer 1987. Actor Adrian Hilton recited Shakespeareís complete works over four days, close to where Shakespeareís Globe now stands in London, becoming the holder of the Guinness World Record for the longest solo theatrical performance!
