MANDA: Zöe Grain
MANDA'S BODY/ THE ENSEMBLE: Emily Costello & Lucy Annable
The 1990s. The East Midlands. A girl left standing on the edge of the dance floor. And a dead hedgehog.
This story of 17-year-old Manda, at the end of the 90s. Dad’s pissed in the living room, watching the darts. Mum’s on the rosé, and Manda’s losing her mind.
She's on the cusp of womanhood, and the world's about to enter a brand spanking new Millennium.
A story of the anxiety, sex, love, family and identity, as well as coming to terms with life, her place in this brave new world and ultimately, how we all find a way to cope.
Written for one female voice, and based on real experiences, HEDGEHOG attempts to unpack the odyssey of the day to day, how huge and insurmountable the world can seem to a person coming to terms with adulthood, and how the creeping spectre of anxiety takes root in young people.
Boldly created with physical theatre, from the creators of multiple ★★★★★ LOOP, HEDGEHOG is an affectionate, witty and current look at every young person’s last deep breath, one look back, and plunge headfirst into the rest of their lives.
