Sam Wanamaker Playhouse:
You can donate to the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, and find out more about this recreation of an indoor Jacobean theatre, on the Shakespeare's Globe website. ZoŽ, who is Honorary President of the Globe, talks about the history and significance of the project in a video by the theatre. 

Current and upcoming projects:
  • Babs (BBC One, 7 May at 8pm): ZoŽ portrays radical theatre director Joan Littlewood in this special, one-off drama celebrating national treasure Barbara Windsor. Now available on R2 DVD.
  • Britannia (Sky 1 and Amazon Prime Video, 2017): ZoŽ stars as Antedia, a key figure in the Celtic resistance movement, in this major, ten-part historical drama series about the Roman invasion of ancient Britain.
  • Inside Number 9 (BBC Two, 2018): ZoŽ guest stars in an episode from this cult comedy-drama's fourth series.
  • Girlfriends (ITV, 2018): ZoŽ stars as Gail, part of a trio of childhood friends rocked by tragedy in this six-part drama series.
  • We can also look forward to a challenging piece for the theatre. More details about that as soon as they're available...

Hear ZoŽ interviewed on BBC Radio 3's Essential Classics next week

25 May 2017 02:01

ZoŽ will be the special guest on BBC Radio 3's Essential Classics next week. What makes this classical music show particularly exciting for fans is that she'll be interviewed on not just one edition but each edition from 29 May to 2 June, i.e. Monday to Friday. Tune into Essential Classics from 10-10:30am each weekday or catch up on the iPlayer to hear ZoŽ chatting to presenter Sarah Walker.

At the end of the week, a podcast version of their discussions will be available to listen to and download indefinitely.

As the BBC's programme details explains, 'As well as discussing her life's work, ZoŽ shares her passion for classical music, choosing a selection of her favourite works by composers including Verdi, Malcolm Arnold and Clara Schumann.'

That last name caught my eye Ė you may remember that ZoŽ played the 19th-century German composer and musician in Clara's Song (2014), which was written by her husband, Gawn Grainger. Like Essential Classics, the beautiful one-off performance at London's Royal Academy of Arts combined the spoken word with classical music.

Let's hope that Clara's Song is one of the subjects discussed next week...
