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.

by William Shakespeare
directed by Deborah Tinsdale


"O, beware, my lord, of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster..."
Shakespeare's most gripping psychological thriller explores the potentially lethal power of love, deception and, most potently, jealousy. Othello, a Moor and general of the Venetian army, has eloped with a senator's young daughter on the eve of a campaign against the Turks. Passed over for promotion, Iago, under a guise of friendship and loyalty, determines to destroy the marriage. Can their love withstand his mind games and halt the ticking timebomb of betrayal and deceit? Experience this taut, claustrophobic masterpiece in the ideal atmosphere of the intimate Mary Wallace Theatre...
