Who Is Jack?

Jack is a well travelled Cornishman who likes to share his stories with people of all ages. Those who listen to his stories often describe Jack as a well rooted, enchanting and open minded guy. 

Like many of the best bits of our work Jack was developed organically and is entirely imaginary.

Cousin Jack's is a Cornish company creating inspiring work for family audiences

The company began in 2008 under the leadership of Cornishman Guy Watson. In the early days the company, then called "the Dream Team", produced a variety of work from street theatre to psychological thrillers. As the company developed, the work being created became more regularly focused on younger audiences.


In 2017 Guy decided, with the support of a newly formed advisory board of experienced Cornish theatre makers, to relaunch the company under a new name, Cousin Jack's, and focus exclusively on creating work for family audiences. 

Cousin Jack's create work to inspire children and their families.
