The Mercyhurst Theatre Program will travel back to 1964 when students perform A Man of No Importance Feb. 23-26. Performances are set Thursday-Saturday at 7:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. in Taylor Little Theatre. The musical, based on a 1994 Albert Finney film, tells the story of Alfie Byrne, a bus driver in 1964 Dublin, whose heart holds secrets he can't share with anyone but his imagined confidante, Oscar Wilde. When he attempts to put on an amateur production of 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.” For more information, visit or call 814-824-3000.
