A Man of No Importance (2016)

A Man of No Importance is a musical with music by Stephen Flaherty, lyrics by Lynn Ahrens and book by Terrence McNally based on the 1994 Albert Finney film of the same name. A Man of No Importance tells the story of Alfie Byrne, an Oscar Wilde-loving bus driver in 1960’s Dublin. Alfie’s passion is directing an amateur theatre troupe, the St. Imelda’s Players. The dedicated performers are determined to stage the controversial “Salome” at their local church. However, the play’s racy subject matter angers church authorities. In the process of fighting for the play, Alfie is finally forced to confront his own homosexuality and reveal his true self to those around him. A Man of No Importance is a great choice for a mostly male cast and requires all performers to use an Irish accent. (Stage Agent)
