I think Hans Conried it a great actor and one of the best in radio's history. This is a sad tale about a poor Communist (who eats only bread and cabbage soup) in the USSR who needs a new coat because his looks like a "cheese cloth" and has "a hole as big as his head under the arm".

In post-revolutionary Russia, a man devotes his entire savings to purchasing a new coat to satisfy his boss. The rest of his life's problems are related to that coat.

Is this the same story as the one by Gogol ??
