RSS Christmas Party - POSTPONED

December 2021

Regrettably the planned Christmas party at The Mary Wallace Theatre, scheduled for 20th December, will not now go ahead due to the additional precautions caused by the pandemic.

We hope to have a spring celebration in due course instead.

Our production of Hay Fever will go ahead as planned, following our updated Covid regulations.

An Autumn of Shows!

December 2021

Our first show of the autumn was The Children by Lucy Kirkwood. In 2019, the Guardian rated the play at No 3 in a list of the 50 best theatre shows of the 21st century. Click here to read the review of our production.

This was followed by The Duchess of Malfi  by John Webster.  Postponed from March 2020, this production made great use of technology; read the review here.

We finished off the year with Hay Fever by Noel Coward.  Described as "so full of laughter", large audiences thoroughly enjoyed this Christmas treat.  Click here to see trailer for the show and here to read the full review.
