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 Death of Miss Gloria Starr

In a small provincial theatre, a cast are getting ready to perform Shakespeare's Macbeth until everything grinds to a halt.  The leading actress Miss Gloria Starr has been shot and found slumped in the wings by the producer.  Who in the cast is cunning enough or has the motive to plot such a gruesome murder?  Who wants to see the downfall of a star?  Come and find out what happens as the interrogation begins.

This play is devised and performed by the R.S.S. Junior Youth Theatre group, aged nine to thirteen.

There are only two performances: Saturday at 7.45p.m. and Sunday at 3p.m.
