A Man of No Importance
Book by Terrence McNally, Music by Stephen Flaherty, Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Based on a Film "A Man of No Importance"

Crafton-Preyer Theatre

“The Truth Is Rarely Pure and Never Simple”

Led by Alfie Byrne, the St. Imelda Players are a (fairly terrible) amateur group who struggle to produce Oscar Wilde’s Salome in the social hall of the Catholic parish church. They navigate societal expectations and secret crushes only to find that no one’s romantic life is simple, but that in the end “you just have to love who you love.” Set in 1964 Dublin, this musical celebration of theatre, identity, and community is based on the Albert Finney film by the same name.

Directed by Lusie Cuskey
Musical Direction by Ryan McCall
Choreography by Gabrielle Smith & Sarah Stowell
Scenic Design by Mark Reaney
Lighting & Costume Design by Taylor Zimmerman
Dramaturgy by Jenny Sledge
Stage Management by Emma Genevieve Dodge
