A musical sitcom about the onset of middle age, with the forty-year-old hero Mervyn.



Rock ín' roll sitcom featuring forty-something Mervyn Stutter as the beleaguered ex-hippy fast approaching his sell by date.

As well as confronting the normal mid-life crises of expanding waistline and diminishing prospects,

Mervyn has to juggle a bizarre and bewildering cast of friends, lodgers and hangers-on.

A hilarious take on the journey into middle age, illuminated and illustrated by specially written songs.
