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.

Next production:  28 October - 4 November 2017

Richard II

by William Shakespeare
directed by Simon Bartlett

Richard II

"... England, that was wont to conquer others            

  Hath made a shameful conquest of itself"

A despotic ruler embedded in the past, surrounded by yes-men. A country taxed to the hilt,  led into futile wars and  feuds, and haunted by suspected murders. Opposition gathers round a rival in the hopes of new start.

Shakespeare's great lyrical tragedy shows a world on the brink - but is it of chaos,  or a new order?

Saturday 28 October to Saturday 4 November 2017
Evenings at 7.45p.m. except for Sunday at 3p.m.
