plays the ir­re­press­ible Rita, a work­ing-class hair­dresser tired of the con­fines of her worka­day ex­is­tence who en­rols in an Open Univer­sity course in English lit­er­a­ture, only to find it taught by a dis­il­lu­sioned and al­co­holic North Down lec­turer, played by Stephen Kennedy.

Education, of course, is a two-way street, where teacher and stu­dent each in­vig­o­rates the other, ul­ti­mately mov­ing both in new di­rec­tions. The ques­tion is whether they like what they find there. Emma Jor­dan di­rects a play wryly aware of how education can be the mak­ing of us. CLUB Hoolie Hux­ley heads west for Hoolie and sparks are sure to fly. The DJ and pro­ducer Michael Dod­man (right) has seen many scenes come and go over his ten­ure in the game and his deep house grooves have proven to be some­thing with time­less ap­peal. Be­tween his re­leases with Ethyl for Ce­cille and his run of solo tracks for Tsuba, Aus Mu­sic, Hy­per­colour and 20:20 Vi­sion, Hux­ley has per­fected his bass-first house sound. ART Jesse Jones: No More Fun and Games “trans­form the gallery space into a cin­e­matic ex­pe­ri­ence through sound and ar­chi­tec­tural in­ter­ven­tions”. To which end she has com­mis­sioned a piece by film com­poser Ger­ald Busby (who scored Robert Alt­man’s 3 Women). She is ad­dress­ing feminism in Ire­land, with an eye to the gen­der equal­ity or in­equal­ity in his­tor­i­cal nar­ra­tives in­clud­ing the Ris­ing and the arts.
