Much-loved Kiwi actor Mark Hadlow is growing up – but not gracefully.

In the ‘90s, he was a SNAG (Sensitive New Age Guy), now he’s evolved into a MAMIL (Middle Aged Man In Lycra).

You’ve seen them – the ageing cyclists who have swapped sports cars for super bikes and swarm our roads in body-hugging outfits and streamlined helmets.

Fresh from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, Hadlow plays property developer Bryan Cook, who has accumulated a small fortune building leaky homes. He’s a stressed out, self-medicating, self-loathing arse, who joins a men’s cycling group for his health and wellbeing. But on this two-wheeled journey he discovers a lot more pain than he bargained for.

With his trademark high energy and humour, Hadlow also plays a multitude of the cyclists in this one-man play penned by Gregory Cooper.

MAMIL is an exploration of the male mid-life crisis in all its lurid lyrca glory, with great scenery on the way.
