Review
Dublin 1963; Alfie Byrne is a bright and cheery bus conducter, regaling his passengers with impassioned recitals of Oscar Wilde's poetry. Unfortunately, like the great man himself, Alfie is a desperately sad and frightened homosexual, torn between the love of a colleague and the desire to keep his sexuality a secret and it is only when Alfie is inspired to put on a production of Salome that he is presented with the opportunity to find some true happiness in his life. 'A Man Of No Importance' is a touching, witty and thoughtful observation of one man's chance of redemption from both his own repression and that of the society in which he lives.
