Keira Knightley and Elisabeth Moss have been cast in Lillian Hellman’s The Children’s Hour, which is due to open in the West End early 2011.

Venue (most likely to be The Comedy Theatre), full casting, production information and performance schedule will be announced shortly.

It is directed by Ian Rickson, and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions & Scott Landis.

When a troubled teenager starts to spin a web of deceit, all around her are soon caught up in it. Karen Wright (Keira Knightley) and Martha Dobie (Elisabeth Moss) have worked for years to establish their all-girls boarding school, and now, with the school flourishing and Karen on the verge of marriage, their lives and loves finally appear secure. However, when malicious student Mary runs away from the school and seeks to avoid being sent back, she draws on hearsay, gossip, and her own imagination, to concoct a story that threatens the school, the marriage, and their entire futures.
