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.

Egad! The Woman in White

by Tim Kelly
directed by Simon Bickerstaffe

Egad! The Woman in White

A phantasmagorically festive feast of farce & fun!  You know the story.  Well, you think you do...  This hilarious spoof of the classic mystery novel is as warming and intoxicating as a glass of Victorian eggnog - a comedic Christmas cocktail of Gothic ghosts, ghoulish gasps, gorgeous gowns... and geriatric gimps.  Boo and hiss as conniving cad Percival Glyde marries lovely Laura Fairley, a wealthy heiress, to save himself from crippling debts.  Jeer and cheer as he has her banged up in an asylum while pretending she's died, only for all to come right (sort of) in the end.  Don't miss out on this laugh-out-loud chance to enjoy Wilkie Collins bothered and bewildered by the spirits of Mel Brooks and Monty Python in a lunatic, multi-layered play-within-a-play that makes Noises Off look right on. Coarse acting?  Possibly.  Compulsory festive viewing?  Absolutely!
