Play It Cool

Play It Cool takes place in 1953 at an underground gay jazz club. Against a sexy Hollywood backdrop, and inspired by film noir, it examines the laws governing such clubs of the time; when every glance had a double meaning, every word was an innuendo and everything had to be done to strict code.
