Cast announced for The Misanthrope starring Keira KnightleyThe full cast has been announced for the West End play starring Keira Knightley and Damian Lewis.

Nicholas Le Prevost, Tim McMullan, Chuk Iwuji and Kelly Price will be playing alongside the previously announced Tara Fitzgerald and Dominic Rowan.

They will be performing in Martin Crimp’s version of Moliere’s The Misanthrope.

It is showing at the Comedy Theatre in London from December 17th 2009 to March 13th 2010.

The play has been transported to modern-day London from Paris in the 17th century and stars a famous British playwright who is contemptuous for the contemporary world.

Alceste, played by Lewis, falls in love with Knightley’s character Jennifer – an ambitious film star from the US.

The production, directed by Thea Sharrock, has had much publicity, which is mainly because it stars the Hollywood actress Knightley in her West End debut.

Knightley is better known for her films including Pirates of the Caribbean, Bend It Like Beckham, Pride and Prejudice and Atonement.
