The piano player from Frisky & Mannish plays the piano player from The Carpenters in a razor-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 like it's yesterday once more, only this time solitaire really is the only game in town.
