On his 5th Birthday, rotten little boy Huxley (Levi Meltzer) is whisked away to the magical Land of Cardboard by his imaginary friend Mr. Cardboard (Miles Calderon). However, the corruption of ageing endangers Huxley’s adventure and the innocence of the Land of Cardboard. Huxley and Mr. Cardboard must work together and discover what it means to be real boys in this hour-long clown pastiche of the childhood/coming-of-age fantasy genre.

Mr. Cardboard is an enchanting, twisted, and introspective clown play. It is the debut hour from Miles Calderon and Levi Meltzer, two performers, theatre-makers, and recent graduates from École Philippe Gaulier. The show is a playful deconstruction of the childhood fantasy genre that bends from a simple narrative about Huxley, a five-year-old boy, and his relationship with his magical imaginary friend, Mr. Cardboard, to a sincere comedy about growing up, friendship, and our ability to play.
