Keira Knightley to star with Damian Lewis in West End's 'Misanthrope'

Posted on

Actress Keira Knightley is set to make her debut in London’s West End (the UK’s equivalent of Broadway) in a new production of Moliere’s The Misanthrope, according to the BBC. She will star opposite Damian Lewis and Tara Fitzgerald. The play, which updates the story from 17th century Paris to contemporary London’s entertainment scene, opens Dec. 17 and runs through March 13. Knightley may be on home turf but she’ll be playing an ambitious American film star named Jennifer, who attracts Lewis’s character.
