A Midsummer Night's Dream
Shakespeare’s most popular and delightful comedy – set largely in a wood outside Athens and culminating in a massed wedding – is the perfect entertainment for our annual summer show.
The play brings together the formality of the military court, the boisterous enthusiasm of the “Rude Mechanicals” and the mysterious charged night-world of the Faerie. Our production will be inspired by the 1940’s and steampunk.
Richmond Shakespeare Society event

Noel Coward's Red Peppers (Edinburgh Fringe Preview)
Blue Fire Theatre Co. make their debut appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe this year. For Noel Coward fans, fans of Variety and in fact anyone looking to have a jolly afternoon/evening who are not able to travel that distance we are previewing the show in Twickenham.
Before we had Britain's Got Talent we had live variety and Red Peppers tells the sorry tale of George and Lily Pepper, a washed up "turn" fed up with their dreadful act and fed up with each other. Sparks fly in the dressing room in this hilarious study of the unglamorous side of showbusiness.
For our preview at the Mary Wallace theatre we have a full variety bill of support artists. Come and see singing, recitations, expert musicianship and a bit of comedy too. Variety returns to SW London for matinee and evening performances on 28th July.
