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.

All’s Well that Ends Well

by William Shakespeare
directed by John Crook

Rarely performed and oft-criticised, this most elusive of Shakespeare's 'problem plays' is possibly one of his most rewarding.  An orphaned girl, hopelessly in love with a young man who longs for freedom, determinedly strives to achieve what she wants while staying within the parameters of honour.  All's Well is not only a beguiling fairytale and captivating romantic comedy, but also a profound examination of love, war and mankind's aspiration to happiness.

 

Saturday 2 to Saturday 9 May 2015
Evenings at 7.45p.m. except for Sunday 3p.m.
Saturday 9th May matinee at 3p.m. as well as evening performance. • No performance on Wednesday
