Richard Carpenter Is Close To You

Matthew Floyd Jones in… Richard Carpenter is Close To You

In a world where rainy days and Mondays collide, one man’s solitary journey to find himself has only just begun…

The piano player from Frisky & Mannish plays the piano player from The Carpenters in a razor-sharp parody play about a life spent playing the piano.

Richard used to be on top of the world, to the left of (and slightly behind) Karen. Now he's back with a vengeance, only to find out it's not exactly yesterday once more anymore.
