Macbeth is a play about fear. When first performed in 1606 belief in witches and supernatural intervention in the governance of the realm was a given, and Shakespeare's tale of political ambition, betrayal and murder would have held a real sense of immediacy and danger for the audience. Ti this day the paly retains an aura of superstition, especially in theatrical circles. At its deepest level Macbeth raised universal questions - at its simplest it can be as scary as The Women in Black.

Richmond Shakespeare Society was founded in 1934 to perform Shakespeare in the open air.

Our annual outdoor Summer Show continues this tradition.

Affiliated to the Little Theatre Guild of Great Britain we perform at the Mary Wallace Theatre on Twickenham riverside.
