A story of two brothers, 1 family, goodies, baddies and autism.

Follow Jack Bray - a young man with severe autism - through the imaginary world he creates in his back garden. Based on his TRUE story, come with Jack’s brother, Lewis & fight inner demons, famous cartoon characters & a whole heap of baddies to stop ‘Mayor Sharp’ from taking over Cartoonopolis and killing creativity once and for all…

After watching cartoons as a young boy, Jack found that they provided him with a gateway into communication and now, as a young adult he has created his own imaginary world: Cartoonopolis.

Follow a host of well-known characters as well as some created in Jack’s imagination - like the evil Mayor Sharp - on an adventure to save the city!

Told alongside this theatrical fantasy world is a real story about living with Jack and his autism… Of how, with his Mum and Dad, we see the family’s highs and lows and their ability to pull together through adversity.

Lewis Bray is an emerging actor and writer. This is his first play performed by himself to outstanding reviews as part of Liverpool Everyman Playhouse Ignition Project and now touring.
