Monday: Fused, Morrissey
Project Arts Centre, Dublin 8.15pm €10-€15 projectartscentre.ie
It’s worth remembering the fun you can have with a mouse. This interactive performance, a charming and ingeniously conceived “point-and-click” adventure game, gleefully revives the problem-solving comic scenarios of the best PC games. Taking turns at the controller (a microphone) the audience guide their avatar, Ste, through a world of mobsters or sci-fi (you decide) issuing commands: talk to the gangster; pick up the hat; flirt with the old woman. It’s also an opportunity to put the performers, quick-witted improvisers, through their paces while either co-operating or (more likely) competing with your fellow players.

Morrissey (left) has had a hard time of it of late (notably a few health issues), but he’s hale and hearty and plugging a new album, World Peace Is None of Your Business, as he returns to the venue known as The Point when he was last there, supporting David Bowie in 1995. Special guest is the rather wonderful Anna Calvi.
