Richard Carpenter was on top of the world looking down on creation, to the left of (and slightly behind) Karen. Now he’s back, and he’s playing solitaire. So get your ticket to ride for an epic concert of classic hit tunes and harrowing psychological trauma from the smiliest control freak in pop-rock history.
Richard Carpenter's Close To You is a new dark comedy performed by Matthew Floyd Jones, the piano player from Frisky & Mannish.
Ages 14+. 1 hour. In the OFS Theatre. £10.
