\"I can\'t quite handle the idea of ‘Screen actress in big West End hit’ and all that,\" said Knightley. \"I would prefer to do something smaller, maybe at the Bush, which is one of my favourite theatres.\" Knightley’s actor father, Will, appeared in David Watson’s Flight Path at the Bush last autumn, while her playwright mother, Sharman MacDonald, premiered two of her plays there, When I Was a Girl I Use to Scream and Shout and The Brave, in the Eighties.
Knightley wouldn’t be the only screen star attracted to the intimate, 80-seat home of new writing based in Shepherd’s Bush in west London. Amongst a long list of top names who’ve performed there, Joseph Fiennes appeared in this summer’s UK premiere of Anthony Weigh’s 2,000 Feet Away (See News, 9 May 2008).
