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 Adventures of Dick Whittington and his Cat

by Dickon Williamson
directed by Stella Gheury de Bray

The Adventures of Dick Whittington and his Cat

We're having a pantomime - Oh yes, we are!

This brand new version of the traditional story follows Dick and his Cat from their home village to London, and then on to Morocco. 

With Dame and Principal Boy, and many others (including some surprises), this pantomime brings you all the usual seasonal delights, culminating in a talent contest to choose the next Mayor of London.  Little ones in the audience will be invited to join in the contest, with a song or dance, or telling a joke.
