Knightley, Moss set for ‘Hour’

Rickson to direct Hellman play in West End

LONDON — Keira Knightley and Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men,” “The West Wing”) will headline a West End production of Lillian Hellman’s “The Children’s Hour.”

Helmed by Ian Rickson (“The Seagull” and Broadway’s upcoming “Jerusalem”), the play, produced by Sonia Friedman Productions and Scott Landis, is skedded to open in early 2011, although a theater has yet to be locked in.

Hellman’s 1934 drama about two teachers accused of having a lesbian affair has never been seen in the West End, although Howard Davies helmed a production at the National Theater in 1994. The play has been filmed twice, once in 1936 by William Wyler as “These Three” and in 1961 as “The Loudest Whisper” with Audrey Hepburn and Shirley MacLaine.
