ART Ái­tiúil Dlr Lex­I­con con­tin­ues to mine a rich seam of lo­cal tal­ent. This show fea­tures five Royal Hiber­nian Aca­demi­cians, all with links to the county. Their work is dis­tinc­tively in­di­vid­ual in each case, and more than worth a close look, from Me­lanie le Broc­quy’s del­i­cately ob­served sculp­tures to Carey Clarke’s vir­tu­oso re­al­ism in still life and land­scape. The other artists are John Coyle, Ge­orge Pot­ter and Imo­gen Stu­art. HIP-HOP/SPO­KEN WORD Ghost­poet Lon­don-based Coven­try bloke Obaro Ejimiwe blends his back­ground roots (Do­minica and Nige­ria) with a level of mes­meric spo­ken word con­tent that is equal parts play­ful, fore­bod­ing, po­etic and con­fes­sional. We’re guess­ing that his set tonight will con­sist of tracks from his re­cently re­leased al­bum, Shed­ding Skin. THEATRE Are You Havin’ A Laugh? April is the month for cel­e­brat­ing Dublin in its lit­er­ary glory. This year the Dublin: One City, One Book is Roddy Doyle’s Bar­ry­town tril­ogy, and quin­tes­sen­tial Dubliner Peter Sheri­dan has put to­gether an an­cil­lary event based on his own re­la­tion­ship with the city. Is there such a thing as Ir­ish hu­mour? Is there such a thing as Dublin hu­mour? Are you havin’ a laugh? Of course there is. Sheri­dan is a charmer and a bril­liant racon­teur, who eas­ily proves his own the­sis.
