Small time con artist Duncan, aka The Drunk, would never have dreamt up the plan to rob the casino he worked in if it hadn't been Chinese Moon Cake Day, if Strange Steve hadn't found the gun in the empty acid-bath tub, if the divorce lawyers hadn't started bleeding him double time, if his boss Bella hadn't laid down the final straw with that derisory two cans of lager pay off... The Hat Check Boy is a moving and tragic comedy of errors about a man against life's ropes, clinging on for the one knock out blow that will transform him from loser to champ.
