Zo makes her Bridge Theatre debut tonight, starring in the sold-out, world premiere performance of Two Ladies, alongside Zrinka Cviteic. The political and personal collide when Zo's Hlne and Zrinka's Sophia, who are both married to world leaders, meet in the midst of an international crisis.

Two Ladies features prominently in the Guardian's pick of this week's UK cultural events. As the newspaper emphasises, '[director] Nicholas Hytners production boasts two powerhouse performers in Zo Wanamaker and Zrinka Cviteic'.

To find out what drew Zo to the play, check out her recent Telegraph interview. 'They never have a say. What are they supposed to do? Just go to dinners? Look glamorous? They appear as trophy wives, essentially outsiders,' she remarks about the role of First Ladies. On the Bridge Theatre stage, at least, they will find a voice. And with the G7 summit having taken place just last month, the play's run is particularly timely. 'Two Ladies couldn't be more apposite,' says Zo. 'It's all playing out.'

For insights into what inspired Two Ladies and how it's been brought to life in rehearsals, head to the theatre's YouTube channel. There you'll find a series of bitesized video interviews with the playwright, Nancy Harris.

Let's wish everyone involved with Two Ladies all the best - break a leg! If you're attending tonight's first preview, enjoy! If not, there's still time to book tickets for later performances.

Two Ladies will run until 26 October and is bound to be a thought-provoking theatrical experience.
