Classic Spring is the new theatre company from Dominic Dromgoole, recent Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe. Classic Spring intends to celebrate the ground-breaking work of proscenium playwrights in the architecture they wrote for. Classic Spring intends to rediscover the original brilliant wit and bold social critique of our proscenium playwrights within the theatres they loved.
Dromgoole said: "It has always been my pleasure and privilege to support the voices of writers, whether new writers at the Bush, the Old Vic or the Globe, or Shakespeare, the mainspring of our theatre culture. This is a wonderful chance to present the work of more writers, who still speak to us piercingly and profoundly today."
The first offering from Classic Spring is an Oscar Wilde Season at the Vaudeville from October of this year, revolving around his four great Victorian plays, which shocked and redefined British theatre, and still resonate and refresh today, A Woman of No Importance, Lady Windermere’s Fan, An Ideal Husband and The Importance of Being Earnest.
