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 Railway Children  (stage version)

If ever there was a "timeless" classic tale, this is surely it. There have been many Stage adaptations, but the one by Mike Kenny for the now famous presentation at Waterloo Station, later at Kings Cross, is the one chosen for our Christmas production.

This is loosely described as the "Adult" version, but do not let this influence you, since it is basically nostalgic: all it needs, as Mr. Kenny points out, is imagination, and as Bobbie says in the very opening: "Do you remember? We were the Railway Children".

Come and enjoy this charming and exquisite piece of our literary heritage.
