 Keira Knightley to Make Broadway Debut in 'Therese Raquin'
A 19th century novel about adultery, madness and guilt that caused a scandal when it was first published and brought its young author, Emile Zola, lifelong notoriety will provide the stage vehicle for Keira Knightley’s Broadway debut. Knightley will star in British playwright Helen Edmundson’s adaptation of the French classic, Therese Raquin, directed by Evan Cabnet. The production will kick off Roundabout Theatre Company’s 50th anniversary season, beginning previews on Oct. 1, 2015, with official opening set for Oct. 29.
The casting of Knightley represents a major coup for Roundabout. The actress has made successful theatrical appearances in London’s West End in The Misanthrope and Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour, but was believed to have long been looking for a project to bring to Broadway.
The title character in the Paris-set Therese Raquin is a bored woman trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly, egocentric cousin. Her life is irrevocably changed when she enters into a torrid affair with a friend of her husband’s, which compels them to commit a violent crime that will prove as damaging to the perpetrators as it is to its victim.
The full cast and design team for the production are to be announced, along with the Broadway venue.
