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:
  • Britannia (Sky Atlantic and Amazon Prime Video, 2018): ZoŽ stars as Queen Antedia, a key figure in the Celtic resistance movement, in this epic, nine-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...

Shakespeare's Globe celebrates Sam Wanamaker and 20 years of stunning theatre

14 June 2017 22:43

To celebrate what would've been its founder Sam Wanamaker's 98th birthday, Shakespeare's Globe has today shared this lovely photo of father and daughter.

Happy Sam Day one and all! The founder of our Theatre, Sam Wanamaker, would have been 98 today. We have a lot to be thankful to him for. Help us celebrate his birthday by sharing your memories - here\u0026#39;s one of ours: Sam with his daughter, Zoe Wanamaker, in the Forest of Dean with a tree to be turned into timber for the frame of our Globe Theatre, circa 1992. #samwanamaker #happybirthdaysam #shakespeare #shakespearesglobe #globetheatre #memories

A post shared by Shakespeare\u0026#39;s Globe (@the_globe) on

It's a particularly special week for The Globe, which celebrated its 20th anniversary on 12 June. On that date in 1997, ZoŽ became the first person to speak on the stage. During the official opening ceremony, she recited the Prologue to Henry V in the presence of the Queen and Prince Philip.

The speech, and ZoŽ's delivery of it, never fails to blow me away Ė unforgettable!

Thank you, Karoline and Janet, for your help!
