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? 

Based on Schopenhauer’s Paradox, the Hedgehog (or Porcupine) Dilemma, Hedgehogs & Porcupines examines the fine line in a relationship between intimacy and irritation, pleasure and pain, love and hate.
