In a world where rainy days and Mondays collide, one man’s solitary journey to find himself has only just begun…
Richard Carpenter Is Close To You
Saturday 8 December
Starring Matthew Floyd Jones
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.
