keira knightley to take on london stage

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?

Frequent Keira Knightley Collaborator Wants Her For His New Play!

Christopher Hampton, who wrote the script for the critically acclaimed flick Antonement, is currently prepping a new play for the National Theatre in London, and he wants Keira Knightley to be a part of the production!

He reveals:

"I think Keira is magnificent on stage. I would love to have her involved."

Agreed!

Knightley previously garnered rave reviews for her appearance in the West End production of The Misanthorpe, and having worked on productions of two films written by Hampton - the second being the upcoming A Dangerous Mind - we think she should go for it!

What do U think?? Would U want to see Keira on stage??
