After two long COVID years, Zoë made her return to live theatre as the cool and enigmatic Tala in Savannah Hankinson's new play
The Easiest Thing at the Tank NYC.
Zoë participated in Shakespeare & Company's 2020 Reading Series, reading the character of Ginny Yang in Smart People, the thought-provoking play by Lydia R. Diamond.
Zoë played the devious Fanny Dashwood and the sly Lucy Steele in Shakespeare & Company's holiday performance of Kate Hamill's adaptation of Sense and Sensibility.
Zoë reprised the role of Julie, a bumbling funeral director in Savannah Hankinson's The Daerie Queene, at Guild Hall of Easthampton.
Zoë played Hermia and Starveling in Vainglory Theatre's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream in upstate New York.
Zoë made her Boston area debut with Actors' Shakespeare Project in Kate Hamill's Pride & Prejudice, as Jane and Miss De Bourgh.
PRAISE FOR ZOË LAIZ...
Zoë stars in Communication is Key, a surrealist horror short film by A.D. Burnett, currently circuiting festivals throughout the country.
Zoë co-narrates Weeping Under This Same Moon by Jana Laiz, a moving and timely story about a Vietnamese refugee and the outcast American teenager who befriends her.
Zoë is excited to be playing Queen Elizabeth in Gray Mallard Theater's inaugural production of Shakespeare's Richard III directed by Noa Egozi, running July 7-24.
"...crafted with an expansiveness that does not surrender character to caricature..."
- Jeffrey Borak, The Berkshire Eagle
"Everyone else in the cast is superb, with Ms. Laiz, whose part is small but flashy, making the biggest impression. She has the kind of star quality that you notice the moment she walks on stage."
- Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal
