Who? A former Cambridge Footlighter gone solo on the circuit as desperate friend-seeking character Pattie Brewster.
What? Hoggart’s a sharp writer and superbly subtle performer, and the cat-obsessed Brewster is a wonderfully observed character: she’s totally oblivious to her own creepiness.
Why? Hoggart’s grabbing the attention of TV execs: she has a pilot in the works for BBC America and is starring in online videos made by Hat Trick Productions.
