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 two shows by our Youth Theatre groups.

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.

Please note that the Mary Wallace is a Club Theatre and that only members of the RSS may buy tickets. However, becoming a member is easy and costs only £10; members may buy tickets for friends and family. The Summer Show is open to non-members.

‘The Weir’, by Conor McPherson, has been widely acclaimed. The play is set in a rural pub in the west of Ireland, a country full of tales of fairies, ghosts and angels. Four regulars and a newcomer to the area – a “blow in” – spend a winter’s evening telling stories. They discover things about each other and themselves that will stay with them – and you - forever. 

Saturday 21 to Saturday 28 January 2017
Performances at 7.45p.m. except for Sunday 22nd January at 3pm • Wednesday 25th January - No Performance
