WITH TOLKIEN, SHAKESPEARE, OTHERS…AND YOU! A message from Ian McKellen: I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney.

A brand new In the Night Garden Live show will be coming to Jersey in 2019! Join Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy, Makka Pakka and friends at In the Night Garden Live for a brand new show on their first ever UK theatre tour in 2019! You’ll see all your favourite characters beautifully brought to life with full-size costumes, magical puppets, and enchanting music. The show lasts just under an hour and it’s a completely new production for the very first In the Night Garden Live UK theatre tour. Now in its 10th year, In the Night Garden Live is one of the UK’s favourite family events. Over one million people have seen it so far and it gets 4.8 out of 5 stars based on 12,844 parents’ reviews – please visit the website to see for yourself. 6

Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience. Growing up in Lancashire, I was grateful to those companies who toured beyond London and I’ve always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the RSC, the National Theatre, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions. I was last at the Opera House with “Acting Shakespeare” 30 years ago I’m delighted to be back. All profits will contribute to the renovation of the dressing rooms and green room.

Inspired by the role of electricity in the human body, Motionhouse’s exhilarating multi-media show Charge is about energy. From the electrical charge that sparks human life, to the beating of our hearts and the memories we make, six performers use dance and acrobatics to delve deep into the human body, tracing the incredible story of energy in our lives. Digital projections create a world on stage where dancers and images interact seamlessly, bringing to life stories of energy in our own bodies and humans as energy manipulators. In an exciting fusion of art and science, Motionhouse has worked with partners from the University of Oxford on the role of electricity in the human body to inspire the show. Charge is the

third element of Kevin Finnan’s Earth Trilogy, developing on themes explored in Scattered (2009) and Broken (2013) about our relationship with water and the Earth. Motionhouse is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

Over the past decade, the condition of psychopathy has garnered a lot of public interest with shows such as Dexter and Killing Eve. This academic talk, citing statistics, research and brain scans, will go beyond the basics and will expand the audience’s knowledge and understanding of the condition. What’s the difference between a Sociopath and a Psychopath? Can psychopaths cheat lie detectors? Is it true they cannot be treated? It’s believed that psychopaths make up 1% of the general population, yet they account for up to 25% of the US male prison population (Hare, 2003). Consequently, the majority of this talk will focus on the link between the condition and criminal behaviour. However, 30

Jennifer will discuss and address the hotly-debated concept of the ‘Good Psychopath’. Do they exist? Can you guess which professions have a high prevalence for psychopaths? Jennifer will discuss fascinating facts about the condition which have not made it into mainstream media, as well as giving an in-depth look at the neuroscience of the disorder. The talk will also explore the phenomenon in relation to ‘psychopathic’ children: how early do the signs emerge?
