The October 7 evening performance of Roundabout Theatre Company's Broadway revival of Émile Zola's Thérèse Raquin has been canceled after star Keira Knightley suffered a minor injury. Roundabout hopes that the drama will resume performances on Thursday, October 8.

Directed by Evan Cabnet and using a new adaptation by Helen Edmundson, the production began previews October 1 and opens October 29 at Studio 54.

Joining Knightley (who takes on the title role) are two-time Tony and Drama Desk Award winner Judith Light (The Assembled Parties) as Madame Raquin, Tony Award winner Gabriel Ebert (Casa Valentina) as Camille, Matt Ryan (Constantine) as Laurent. David Patrick Kelly (Once), Jeff Still (Fish in the Dark), Mary Wiseman (An Octoroon), Glynis Bell (The Winslow Boy), Alex Mickiewicz (Robin Hood), Sara Topham (The Importance of Being Earnest), and Ray Virta (Hedda Gabler).

Edmundson's new adaptation of Thérèse Raquin was commissioned by Roundabout Theatre Company. In the drama, Thérèse has made peace with her loveless marriage to a weak man when her world is turned upside down by the entrance of Laurent. Unable to ignore their passion, the pair sets off on a violent path that may have far worse consequences for the perpetrators than for the victims.

The creative team includes Beowulf Boritt (set design), Jane Greenwood (costume design), Keith Parham (lighting design), and Josh Schmidt (sound design).
