Looks like Keira Knightley is going to return to the theater in London.
Knightley is in talks to flex her theatre muscle with a starring role in a new production of Lillian Hellman's The Children's Hour, in the West End.
The performance will be directed by Ian Rickson, but no other major announcements have been made as of yet.
The play's story takes place in an all-girls boarding school, which an angry student runs away from. In an effort NOT to be sent back, she tells her grandmother that the two women who run the school are having a lesbian affair, which causes serious trouble for the women.
Knightley's last performance on the West End was The Misanthrope in December 2009, which garnered rave reviews.
Would U like to see Keira Knightley take the stage again? Do U think she should make her way to Broadway next?
