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.

The Seagull

by Anton Chekhov, in a new version by Torben Betts
directed by Susan Conte

The Seagull

As summer guests assemble at a country house for the staging of an avant-garde play, artistic temperaments ignite to reveal a more entertaining drama behind the scenes. Romantic jealousies, self-doubt and the ruthless pursuit of personal happiness take centre stage in The Seagull, the first of Chekhov's great works.

Torben Betts has created a radically funny new version of this classic and the play becomes a fresh, free-flying adaptation. It will break your heart but rock you with laughter.
