The painter Jean Paul Credeaux has just been rediscovered by the art world. Meanwhile, back in the East Village, Jamie's father has died; he and his starving-artist roommate, Winston, don't even have a kitchen sink. To make matters worse, Jamie's father forgot him in the will, leaving his legacy of art dealings to charities and friends. Jamie's girlfriend, Amelia, can't keep a job to support her singing career. They are out of options, until Jamie has an idea for the three of them to forge a Credeaux painting (a nude portrait) and sell it to fund their dreams. Only one problem: Jamie doesn't paint... "The Credeaux Canvas" is a complex love story, shining a sharp light on the things we give up in the fight for what we want.

" This is what off-off Broadway theatre is about. A great play. A good cast. The newly formed The Seeing Place Theater Company’s mission statement proclaims they "want to produce theatre we all want to believe in,” and they fully succeed with their inaugural production of Keith Bunin’s The Credeaux Canvas. They are definitely a company to watch." - Zak at
