Created by siblings Rosemarie, Constantine, and Michael Costi, this new musical is the tale of an office worker’s tragic quest for warmth and connection in frantic city streets that pulse to the rhythm of a Russian jazz trio.

Nikolai is a clerk in St Petersburg and a social outsider – perpetually uncomfortable in his skin. Following an embarrassing exchange with a colleague, he decides to sell everything he owns in order to buy a brand new overcoat in a desperate effort to change his life forever.
