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.

Tickets are available to members and non-members with members being able to buy tickets at a reduced members price.

Hedda has youth. Hedda has beauty. Hedda has love. Hedda has everything any woman could want.

But is everything too much? Or not enough?

Ibsen’s great play, first performed in 1891 and here in Christopher Hampton’s acclaimed translation, is a thrilling study of passion and power.
