ART Daphne Wright: Antrum Antrum in­cludes life casts of Wright’s two sons, and a child is also at the heart of two video pieces in which a soli­tary, face-painted boy speaks in rid­dles. Wright has in mind the re­cip­ro­cal ex­pe­ri­ences of par­ent­ing and be­ing a child, bound up with “guilt and love, life and loss”. Her show is com­ple­mented by an ex­hi­bi­tion of in­stal­la­tion and paint­ing by three Cork-based artists. THEATRE Death of a Co­me­dian Owen McCaf­ferty is one of North­ern Ire­land’s most in­ter­est­ing play­wrights. From his de­but Mojo Mick­ybo to the 2012 play Qui­etly, he has sung an oblique song of life in post-Trou­bles Belfast. In his lat­est play, a stand-up co­me­dian eval­u­ates the price of his com­mer­cial suc­cess. What does his girl­friend think? What does his agent think? Most im­por­tantly, what will you, the au­di­ence, think?
