About Cheek by Jowl – company film

Cheek by Jowl is a registered charity. Its unique process has been an inspiration for both audiences and the artists with whom we collaborate. Throughout the decades, and across the world, actors, directors, designers – and most importantly the public – have been moved by our ground-breaking productions.

We are proud to have nurtured many emerging talents – Gwendoline Christie, Tom Hiddleston,
Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Adrian Lester, Matthew Macfadyen, Michael Sheen and
Olivia Williams are amongst the names who have worked with us.

With the changes ahead for the UK’s relationship with Europe, our international performances and touring programme have never been more necessary. It is your support that helps us to continue our work, doing what we do best: taking creative risks, nurturing new talent, providing educational resources of the highest quality and ensuring that, in whatever language, we produce world-class theatre.

Without the generous help of our donors, Cheek by Jowl’s online archive, in which we document nearly forty years of the company’s history, would not exist. This archive is updated with each new production, providing audiences, academics, artists and students detailed insight into our production process.

You too can help us deliver innovative education projects, create our next productions, and perform across the globe, by joining one of our three fundraising schemes or making a donation.

Cheek by Jowl is a company registered in Scotland (SC078954) and a registered charity (SC013544).

  • Esmé Cook
  • Peter de Graaf
  • Tom Hayhoe

  • Judith Patrickson
  • Richard and Elizabeth Philipps

We are grateful for the support of our Production Patrons
