Following on its sell-out production at the Union Theatre, the Arts Theatre is delighted to announce the transfer to A Man of No Importance for a limited season only MORE INFO

Based on a 1994 independent film starring Albert Finney, A Man Of No Importance is about the journey of self-discovery and acceptance of Alfie Byrne, a Dublin bus conductor who is prone to reciting poetry to the patrons on his bus. Alfie is also the director of the local community theatre, which operates out of a small parish hall in the neighborhood church. Alfie's passengers on the bus are also his performers: amateur thespians that come to see the magic the theatre offers through his eyes.


They inhabit the world of working-class Dublin in the 1960s, a world where the budding sexual freedom happening in other parts of the world is barely whispered about. Through the beautiful book by Terrence McNally, and the lyrical grace of the score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, the team that brought us the magnificent Ragtime The Musical now shine their light on A Man Of No Importance, illuminating the feeling we have all felt at one time or another of being an outsider looking in and our universal need to love and be loved in return, connecting to something much larger than ourselves  MORE INFO
