Richard Carpenter takes on Australia, mate

In a world where Rainy Days and Mondays collide,
one man’s Solitairy journey to find himself has only just begun...

Richard used to be on Top of the World, to the left of (and slightly behind) Karen.  
Now he's coming back with a vengeance, 
only to find that it's not exactly Yesterday, Once More.

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