in a revival of Moliere's The Misanthrope. The play opens at the
Comedy Theatre today and will continue running till March 13, 2010.
The production, adapted by Martin Crimp, moves the scene of
action from 17th Century Paris to present day London. However, the
Pirates of the Caribbean star is just focussing on her performance.
"I'm not coming into it with any great expectations of coming away
with great reviews," the BBC quoted Knightley, as saying
Explaining why she decided to foray into theatre, she said: "I
thought if I don't do theatre right now, I think I'm going to start
being too terrified to do it…So I just thought, okay, dive in and
give it a go." She added: "If my best isn't good enough, then so be
it." She also revealed that her experience so far had been
"extraordinary and incredibly fulfilling".
