In an effort to support underfunded literacy classrooms, Bookworm Theatrics Inc is proud to present it’s fundraising performance of:
A MAN OF NO IMPORTANCE
Alfie Byrne is a bus driver in 1964 Dublin whose heart holds secrets that he can’t share with anyone. When he attempts to put on an amateur production of Oscar 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 theatre changes his life and brings his friends to his side.
A Man of No Importance is a rare gem in the canon of musical theatre, one that combines the depth and drama of a play with the lyricism and comedy of a musical. A tender and beautifully woven tale of love, friendship and coming to terms with who we are.
Featuring the talents of Adam Barr, Daniel Bussey, Amanda Cox, Lisa Flanagan, Amy Frey, Patrick Curley, Paul Gary, Abbie Getty, Johnny Heller, Wendell Hester, Allison Macri, Christine Rendel, and James Romick
Directed by Angela Rose Masi. Assistant Director Carol Monda. Music Director Amy Duran.
