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.

Book tickets for Macbeth


'Macbeth' is a play about fear.  When first performed in 1606, belief in witches and supernatural intervention in the governance of the realm suggests that this play would have held a real sense of immediacy and danger for the audience.  Today, it retains an aura of superstition, especially in theatrical circles.  I hope to use theatrical techniques to allow the audience to share Macbeth's physical and metaphysical insecurity.  On it simplest level, think 'The Woman in Black'.
