Chuk Iwuji, Kelly Price, and Nicholas Le Prevost will join previously announced cast members Keira Knightley, Damian Lewis, Tara Fitzgerald, Dominic Rowan, and Tim McMullan in Molière's The Misanthrope, translated by Martin Crimp, to run December 7-March 13 at the Comedy Theatre. Thea Sharrock will direct the production.

Crimp's updated version of Moliere's comedy moves the action from 17th-century Paris to contemporary London.
