Classic Spring is a new theatre company, formed by Dominic Dromgoole (former Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre) to celebrate the bold and ground breaking work of proscenium playwrights in the architecture for which they wrote. The company’s 2018 season, featuring four of Oscar Wilde’s greatest Victorian plays, began with A Woman of No Importance, and after Lady Windermere’s Fan will feature An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest.
