Keira Knightley is set to make her big Broadway debut next year in a play called Therese Raquin.

The play adaptation of Emile Zola's novel will star Knightley in the title role, with the show set to open on October 29, 2015.

Therese Raquin follows the story of a woman trapped in a loveless marriage who then starts to have an affair with one of her husband's friends.

Knightley's Broadway debut comes following a 2009 production of The Misanthrope on London's West End.
