Los Angeles - Keira Knightley is to make her Broadway debut next year.

The 29-year-old actress is set to appear as a beautiful but doomed heroine in the stage adaptation of Emile Zola's novel Thérèse Raquin, from October next year, the Roundabout Theatre Company have announced.

The production is to be directed by Evan Cabnet and will be based on the story about a woman trapped in a failed marriage, who strikes up an illicit affair with her husband's best friend.

The novel, which was published in 1867, was turned into a film starring Simone Signoret in 1953, and was then taken and adapted again for the movie In Secret, starring Elizabeth Olsen, last year.

Meanwhile, Keira made her West End debut in 2009 when she starred in the comedy The Misanthrope, before taking to the stage just two years later for Lillian Hellman's The Children's Hour.

The stunning star was last seen in the romantic film Begin Again, and will next feature on the big screen for Everest, also starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and Sam Worthington, which will be released in 2015.
