Created by siblings Rosemarie, Constantine, and Michael Costi, this new musical is the hilarious and heartbreaking tale of an officer worker’s tragic quest for warmth and connection in frantic city streets that pulse at the rhythm of a 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. Upon receiving his coat Nikolai feels elated, valued and worthy of affection. After a work dinner that evening, he crosses a public square and is approached by a gang who rob him of his cherished coat. This loss shatters his spirit and propels him towards a coatless end.
