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 Matthew Floyd plays the piano player from the Carpenters in a razop-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 its not exactly yesterday once more anymore.
DISCLAIMER: This Award-Winning Fringe hit show is not endorsed by the real Richard Carpenter.
