Keira in “The Misanthrope”

The Daily Mail reports that Keira will appear in a play called The Misanthrope alongside Damian Lewis and Tara Fitzgerald. The show will commence its run in December and Keira will play Jennifer.

Keira Knightley has cancelled her close-ups in front of movie cameras for a while so she can make her stage debut in the West End in December.

Last night, the Oscar-nominated actress was said to be ‘terrified but excited’ about appearing in a modern-day version of Moliere’s 17th century masterpiece The Misanthrope, in which she will play a flirtatious Hollywood film star, joining an ensemble cast led by Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre actor Damian Lewis, who plays the title role.

Tara Fitzgerald and Dominic Rowan will also star. Rehearsals start the middle of next month, with preview performances at the Comedy Theatre from December 7 and an official opening night on December 17.
