Drawing from Schopenhauer’s famous paradox, the Porcupine (or Hedgehog) Dilemma


After a successful work in progress performance at The Stockwell Playhouse One Act Festival, Hedgehogs & Porcupines, written by James P Mannion, comes to The Old Red Lion for a limited run, presented by Blueleaf Theatre in association with Marzipan Productions.

Hedgehog and Porcupine have been together for longer than they can remember. Well, longer than Porcupine can remember. Hedgehog knows exactly how long it’s been. For five years they’ve been stabbing each other repeatedly with their sharp quills, but despite this agony, the ‘warmth’ their relationship provides means neither has managed to break free. That is, until a manic twenty-four-hour cycle of argument and recriminations forces both to ask themselves the ultimate question: is this really worth it?

Hedgehogs & Porcupines examines the fine line between intimacy and irritation, pleasure and pain, love and hate.
