The Embankment, Twickenham

Webster's stunning tragedy explores class and gender inequality, misogyny, madness and murder in a High Renaissance court. Recent exposes of toxic masculinity by the #MeToo movement provide one of the many contemporary resonances of the play. This adaptation
transports the drama to a powerful celebrity family, set against the backdrop of a 1960's Italian film studio and the Vatican.

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.
