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.Follow @rssmwt
"A Trivial Comedy for Serious People."
Arguably the most popular comedy of the English-speaking stage. The Importance of Being Ernest has also provoked intense, continuous debate since its 1895 premiere. Is it a light comedy, biting satire or witty farce of misunderstanding and mistaken identities? Or a perceptive, if superficially jovial, indictment of Victorian values, the hypocritical etiquette of courtship and marriage and the artificial politeness of high society.
Ticket prices £10, except Friday and Saturday evening when £12.
