Charming little space

The theatre is quite sweet, with the lovely ladies behind the box office hand writing the tickets for you upon arrival. Odd though it may seem, I'd recommend booking ahead, as we came on a Monday evening and they were almost at capacity!

On the plus side, there's free parking directly behind which doesn't flood, so take advantage.

Went and saw King Lear. Brought me to tears. Fantastic play. By some truly talented actors. Very lovely small theatre. With accessible bar. Well staffed and clean. Would recommend. First class.

Small, wonderful local theatre
Dec 2014 • Couples
This was my 2nd visit to this theatre, and on both occasions I have had a wonderful time. The theatre is situated just off of the main High Street on the River Thames. It has a small foyer/bar area which is a handy meeting point for accompanying guests. I would recommend this theatre to anyone wishing to see theatre in an intimate setting. The actors and volunteers work very hard putting on these performances and on both of my visits I have enjoyed each performance.

A gem
Jun 2014 • Family
Allthough I have lived in Twickenham for 30 years, I only visited this hidden treasure last weekend to see "From These Green Heights". I was given a leaflet on Church St at the festival and encouraged to go see the Theater for myself, hich we did and we were very kindly given a short tour by one of the members. So we decided on a whim to go to the production that night. Must admit it was more curiosity but I dragged the family with me. It was a fantastic night, I laughed and sobbed into my hanky with equal measure, the calibre of the production and the acting was incredible - a few dodgy Dublin accents (everyone's a critic!), but we all enjoyed it immensely. Had a drink at the very pleasant bar (sold London Pride so my Husb happy) and we will be back, we even joined - what better endorsement is that??!

Lovely theatre venue
Jun 2013 • Family
I am very loathed to write anything about this fantastic theatre as this is a real hidden secret, if it became more popular I am sure I would find it difficult to get tickets. None the less you have to admire all the hard work done but staff, supporters and volunteers. A great venue that puts on very enjoyable and professional productions.

Small atmospheric theatre
Feb 2014 • Couples
I've been coming to the Mary Wallace for a number of years. Throughout the year there is a wide variety of plays ranging from the light to one or two serious plays. I would describe the quality of the acting as semi-professional - I have the impression that many professionals are involved in the company.

Every year they put on an outside production of a Shakespeare play in the attractive grounds of nearby York House. An event not to be missed.

The theatre is also home to a children's theatre group.

The theatre is located near the River Thames and has a nice view of the boat yards and interesting houses on Eel Pie Island - home to artists and other creative people.

Within five minutes walk there is also a number of interesting pubs including the Barmy Arms and the Swan. In Church Street there are other pubs and some very nice restaurants.

Parking is relatively alright and Twickenham has a good bus service. The station is about ten minutes walk. The R68 and 33 bus routes take you to Richmond where you can pick up the train and tube networks.

This amateur theatre surpasses West End productions
Feb 2014 • Solo
As a theatre lover in SW London, I have been a member for a few years (despite living several miles away) and try not to miss any of their productions. I have only praise for this gem of a theatre: small, intimate, great choice of works offered, wonderful actors (often better than professionals!), beautiful productions, cosy bar with a friendly atmosphere, and often they have tickets available at short notice. I would not have missed their recent take on 'The importance of being Ernest' for the world ! West End theatres little missed, I'm afraid....

Excellent evening

Visited the theatre to see a RSS play for which we had won tickets .Decided to take our daughter aged 12 as she declared she found Shakespeare confusing ! Well what a joy the play was... By the end I had tears in my eye and so did she, so obviously the plot and meaning came through clearly !
Great theatre and welcoming atmosphere, definitely recommend a visit.

A Treasure
Feb 2013 • Friends
This little theatre is a treasure! It has its own cosy and friendly atmosphere made by amateur actors and staff who are passionate about Shakespeare and of course other playwrights, about producing and acting and so they give us superb performances, moving, exciting, funny...
Their productions are alway a joy. The Summer outdoor performances in some romantic spot in Twickenham are for many one of the highlights of Summer.

A very friendly meeting place
Situated a stones throw from the Thames and the famous Eel Pie Island, this theatre, dedicated to Shakespearean works and a lot more! Friendly bar staff add to the fun.
