The off-Broadway play The Credeaux Canvas has proved popular for small theatre producers in Sydney, having been staged just two years ago. The producer here, Les Solomon, mounted the Australian premiere 14 years ago and liked it so much he decided to bring it back (with co-producer Bryce Hallett).
Like Kenneth Lonergan’s This is Our Youth, this play is set in a Manhattan apartment and primarily concerns three young people, struggling to find their place in the world. They’re close, but willing to betray each other with little hesitation.
