Black Wool Jacket spins true tales from a wild nightclub coat check. Meet Nat, bookish PhD student in desperate need of a side job. When the only gig she can find is checking jackets deep in the heart of Toronto’s late-night entertainment district — far from her usual Friday nights at a library desk — Nat doesn’t expect to last long. But, behind a desk of a very different kind, Nat has front-row seats to the strangest show in town: the nightclub. Armed with an ear for eavesdropping, Nat’s nights at coat check write themselves into tales of passion, heartache, and maybe just a bit too much whiskey. From the unbelievable to the inconceivable, the hilarious to the unsavory, Black Wool Jacket retraces the stories that people share, when they think no one is listening or likely to remember in the morning.
