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.

Book tickets for The Tempest

The Tempest

Shakespeare's mystical final  play will be brought to colourful life with fabulous costumes and original music in the RSS 's latest outdoor production on our very own " enchanted isle" of the York House Fountain Garden, Twickenham riverside.

This is  a tale of intrigue and romance, magic and mayhem. A man has been cast away on a remote island with his daughter - but this is no ordinary island and Prospero is no ordinary man. He is a magus able to control the very elements. He creates a vast  storm shipwrecking his enemies on his fantastical island where nothing is what it seems, but is this for revenge or reconciliation?

Monday 17 to Saturday 22 July 2017
Performances at 7.45p.m. every night, plus matinee at 3p.m, on Saturday.
