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.Follow @rssmwt
"I see you, and your beauty makes me burn"
For 2014, the RSS Senior Youth Theatre production takes a darker, more surreal turn than we have seen from this talented group in the past, with Lorca's rural tragedy 'Blood Wedding'. A modern classic, this passion-fuelled play tells the story of a reluctant betrothal, a surprise elopement and a bloody revenge. It is a tale to both warm the heart and chill the bone. Complementing the poetic, visceral language, the group have composed original music with a traditional Spanish flavour, to be performed live on acoustic instruments. Add to this some ambitious physical theatre, stirring ensemble work and a liberal sprinkling of song and dance, and we can promise you a heady theatrical brew.
