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.

Much Ado About Nothing

True love? True hate? Mistaken identities?  Much Ado About Nothing takes us through the twists and turns of comedy and romance as only Shakespeare can. The troops return home to the women they left behind. But as mischief and villainy intervene, will true love survive?

 This much loved classic ‘battle of the sexes’ is one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies, from barbed wit to bumbling policemen. Come along and find out if Cupid’s arrows strike true.
