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.
By turns funny, disquieting, farcical and shocking, these two short plays are radically different from anything else you are likely to see.
Leonardo's Last Supper takes place in a charnel house where the mortal remains of the recently deceased Renaissance giant - Leonardo da Vinci, no less - are being laid to rest. Or are they?
Laughter (Part II) is a farcical office comedy, where comfortable bureaucrats have their territorial rights challenged by an ambitious interloper. But this office is in 1942 Berlin, and there's something behind it all...
Comedies, yes. But with a wicked sting in the tail.
