Based on a film, “A Man of No Importance”

From the award-winning writers of Ragtime, A MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE tells the story of Alfie Byrne, a bus driver in 1964 Dublin, whose heart holds secrets he can’t share with anyone but his imagined confidante, Oscar Wilde. When Alfie attempts to put on an amateur production of Wilde’s Salome in the local church hall, he confronts the forces of bigotry and shame over a love “that dare not speak its name.” But the redemptive power of theater changes his life and brings his friends back to his side. A MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE is a tender and beautifully woven tale of love, friendship and coming to terms with who we are and who we love.
