A Carpenter
Richard Carpenter's Close to You

The Warren: Theatre Box (Comedy)
Warnings: Swearing, Age 12+
Remember this guy? He used to be on top of the world, to the left of (and slightly behind) superstar Karen. Nowadays, Richard Carpenter is finally a solo act, still looking down on creation from behind his piano. So... Where do we go from here? Well, get yourself a ticket to ride, and buckle up.

A colourful hybrid of character comedy, dramatic monologue and live music gig, Richard Carpenter's 'Close to You' is an epic account of the ultimate control freak, performed by Matthew Floyd Jones, the guy to the left behind the piano from that other celebrated musical double act 'Frisky & Mannish'.

Come for the virtuosic renditions of the Carpenters' catchiest tunes, stay for the harrowing scenes of psychological torment. Cos Solitaire's the only game in town!

Praise for Jones:

"Wildly talented" (Independent).

"A terrific lead" (Time Out).

"Such a compelling performer" (Exeunt). "Hugely entertaining" (The Guardian).

THIS PARODY SHOW IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH RICHARD CARPENTER IN ANY WAY. IT IS A WORK OF FICTION INSPIRED BY HIS LEGACY AND INTENDED WITH LOVE. AND IF BIRDS SUDDENLY APPEAR, WELL, THAT'S JUST A COINCIDENCE.
