Quoting Keira
"All through my life what I've loved doing is watching movies. I love the escapism of film, I love stories. So it is incredible to be able to be in them as much as I am, to see them from the first stitch in a costume to the end product."
Keira Knightley to Make Broadway Debut in ‘Thérèse Raquin’

The Roundabout Theater Company announced on Thursday that the British film star Keira Knightley (“The Pirates of the Caribbean” films, “Bend It Like Beckham”) will play the title role in a new adaptation of the classic Émile Zola novel “Thérèse Raquin” in 2015. The production, the first Broadway staging of the company’s 50th-anniversary season, will be Ms. Knightley’s Broadway debut. The play is scheduled to begin previews on Oct. 1 and open on Oct. 29.

The adaptation, by Helen Edmundson (“The Clearing,” “Mother Teresa is Dead”), was commissioned by the Roundabout and was performed in Britain this summer. Ms. Edmundson is an associate artist at the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Bristol Old Vic. The production will be directed by Evan Cabnet (“The Dream of the Burning Boy,” “Poor Behavior”).

Though best known for her film roles, Ms. Knightley has appeared in West End productions of Molière’s “The Misanthrope” and Lillian Hellman’s “The Children’s Hour.” Her most recent films include “Laggies,” which opens on Friday, and “The Imitation Game,” in which she plays opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, which opens in November.

Other casting and production details will be announced later, the company said.
