    One of New Zealand’s best-known actors, Mark Hadlow, brings to Hamilton his one man show as the most polarising of species – a middle aged man in lycra: a MAMIL.

    Bryan Cook is a property developer who has accumulated a small fortune building leaky homes. He’s stressed out, self-medicating and self-loathing; killing himself to increase his bank balance while decreasing his golf score.

    When things fall apart, he joins a men’s cycling group to relieve the stress – and makes a few startling discoveries in various cracks and crevices.

    Poignant and achingly funny, MAMIL presents the male mid-life crisis in all its lurid glory
