Description

Formerly a Sensitive New Age Guy (SNAG) in the 90’s, one of New Zealand’s most beloved actors, Mark Hadlow is a little older but his character none the wiser as he returns to the stage as the most polarising of species - a middle aged man in lycra.

Mamil is an exploration into the male mid-life crisis in all its lurid glory (superbikes replacing sports cars a well-known symptom of this affliction).  Playing a multitude of characters complete with Hadlow’s trademark high energy and childlike enthusiasm once again proves that now in middle age, Hadlow has no intention of slowing down. His work in the current The Hobbit trilogy is a throwback to his early works with Sir Peter Jackson – both in 2005’s King Kong remake and even earlier in the 1989 black comedy Meet The Feebles, earning him “Best Actress” at Italy’s Fantafestival in 1991. Combined with his television work (in particular, Willy Nilly in 2001-2003) and tireless theatrical work, Hadlow has rightfully earned his position as one of New Zealand’s most treasured performers.  

A show that knows no geographical boundaries and a universal truth that everyone has an opinion of the MAMIL, Cooper and Hadlow present a poignant and sharply comical look at one of the most polarising of species – the Middle Aged Man in Lycra.
