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.

‘Launched with a flourish’ (The Sunday Times), Classic Spring’s Oscar Wilde Season promises to cast new light on Wilde’s ground-breaking work, showing how more than a century on, he still strikes to the heart of social scandal.
