  • In "Out of Beirut," at Modern Art Oxford from 13th May, Lebanese artists, performers, architects and thinkers investigate their capital city. The exhibition includes Lamia Joreige's haunting psychogeographic film Here and Perhaps Elsewhere, in which she walks Beirut's former green line.

  • Angry Young Woman Shelagh Delaney's 1958 classic A Taste of Honey is apparently Morrissey's favourite play. It is revived at the Oldham Coliseum from 20th April and then tours.

  • The curators at Pitzhanger Manor Gallery, London, are surely tempting fate in calling their ceramics exhibition "Breakers." It opens on 19th May.

  • Dancer Eddie Ladd reworks the Welsh myth of a woman formed from flowers in Blodeuwedd, on 2nd May, part of ROH2 at the Linbury Studio, London.

  • Samuel Beckett is often accused of being apolitical—most scathingly of late by David Hare. The debate rages on in Beckett and Politics, a talk at the Barbican, London on 21st April.

  • Choreographer Wayne McGregor worked with heart-imaging specialists as well as composer John Tavener to make his startling piece Amu, revived at Snape Maltings Concert Hall from 28th April.
