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.

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.

Larkin with Women

It's 1956, and Philip Larkin, one of England's most famous post-war writers, has just arrived in Hull as the University Librarian. Over the next thirty years, his life there will be dominated by three women.

In this funny and touching new play, we see behind the façade of 'the Bard of Humberside' and into his complex private life.
