Former Shakespeare's Globe artistic director Dominic Dromgoole has teamed up with producer Nica Burns to launch a theatre company focused on classic playwrights.

Called Classic Spring, it will celebrate the work of proscenium playwrights, including Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw, staging their plays in the theatres they wrote for.

The company will produce its first play, Wilde's A Woman of No Importance, in October 2017 at a  theatre yet to be announced.

Directed by Dromgoole, the production will kick off a year-long West End season revolving around Wilde's other Victorian plays –

Lady Windermere's Fan,

An Ideal Husband and

The Importance of Being Earnest.
