Richmond Shakespeare Society at The Mary Wallace Theatre

Welcome to the Richmond Shakespeare Society

We are a highly-respected amateur dramatic society founded in 1934 to perform Shakespeare's plays annually in the open air.

Today we have grown to a programme of eight productions a year by vastly differing playwrights from ancient Greece to the modern day. In addition we have a youth group, the RSS Young Actors Company, who perform a show a year .

We have our own theatre, the Mary Wallace Theatre by the riverside in Twickenham. Our Summer Show is an Open Air production, in the gardens of neighbouring York House.

Tickets are available to members and non-members with members being able to buy tickets at a reduced members price.

Punk Rock & Bassett

RSS Young Actors Company welcome you to a double bill of cutting edge, contemporary plays set in the formative world of the academic institution. Expect the unexpected as we take you on a journey into the hearts and minds of young people today and their battle to make sense of the world.

Simon Stephens’ Punk Rock and James Graham’s Bassett, staged within the walls of a College library and a Year 11 classroom, combine to produce an evening you won’t forget.

The production contains language that some may find offensive.
