Richard Carpenter Is Close To You

Richard from The Carpenters used to be on top of the world looking down on creation, to the left of (and slightly behind) Karen. Now, he’s back at the piano once more in this razor-sharp tragicomedy that takes you on the ultimate ticket to ride. Cos solitaire really is the only game in town! Written and performed by Matthew Floyd Jones, the piano player from Frisky & Mannish. ‘Hugely entertaining’ (The Guardian). ‘Such a compelling performer’ (ExeuntMagazine.com) ‘Seriously talented’ ★★★★ (The Observer). Disclaimer: this affectionate but unsparing parody is not endorsed by the real Richard Carpenter.

‘This homage to one half of one of the biggest-selling pop groups stands out from its rivals because it has a caustic edge’
