Thérèse Raquin


CRITICS' PICK / FOUR STARS —Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

"Leaves the audience gasping." —Marilyn Stasio, Variety

Roundabout Theatre Company presents a striking new adaptation of Thérèse Raquin starring Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and Olivier nominee Keira Knightley (Pride and Prejudice, Pirates of the Caribbean film series) in her Broadway debut. Evan Cabnet (Roundabout’s Dream of the Burning Boy) directs.

A quiet young woman with a restless spirit, Thérèse (Knightley) submits to a loveless life at the side of her weak and selfish husband (Tony Award® winner Gabriel Ebert, Matilda), and her controlling mother-in-law (two-time Tony Award winner Judith Light, The Assembled Parties) … until she meets his childhood friend, Laurent (Matt Ryan, “Constantine”). When their overwhelming passion spins violently out of control, they realize that love can be a dangerous game, and sometimes there is no winner.

Based on the novel by Émile Zola, Thérèse Raquin by Helen Edmundson is a tale of love, lust, betrayal and guilt that will leave you breathless.

Recommended for ages 16 and up.
 
Thérèse Raquin is made possible with major support from the Florence Gould Foundation.
