A Man of No Importance

Auditions: July 1 and July 2, 2024

Directed by Matthew W. Smith

Winner of the 2003 Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, A Man of No Importance is the second successful collaboration by the team of Terrence McNally, Lynn Ahrens, and Stephen Flaherty—all of whom won Tony Awards for Ragtime. Alfie Byrne is a bus conductor in 1964 Dublin whose heart holds
secrets that he can’t share with anyone but his imagined confidante, Oscar Wilde. When he 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.”
