“At Home With The Hoggs” is rooted in one thing that we share: we are immigrants.
Haven’t we all, at some stage, cut ties with the familiar to make a change, to start new lives? And isn’t this a potentially bonding experience that we have in common, here in the great Ex-Patria, the modern day Euro colony of English speakers that extends from Majorca to Gibraltar? It’s no accident that this is the TRE catchment area. And so it is that Home With The Hoggs is based in satire, stories and conversation about this “potentially bonding experience” of our new homeland.
From exhilaration to exasperation
From partial understanding to blundering confusion
From an “ahah!” moment to lost in translation
From do I stay or do I go?
