A Man of No Importance

In 1964 Ireland, affable Dublin bus conductor, Alfie Byrne is on a collision course with his true nature. Entranced by a new passenger, Adele, Alfie naively chooses to stage Oscar Wilde’s Salomé in his church hall with her as the lead. Alfie’s sister Lily is encouraged by his interest in the mysterious Adele, for his sister has been putting off her own life in order to get Alfie married first. Alfie discovers his personal passion, which drives him to follow precariously in the footsteps of Wilde. The inspired Alfie finds the redemptive power of theatre, community, and love.
