LONDON, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Ellen Burstyn is to make her West End debut in "The Children's Hour," a stage drama starring Keira Knightley and Elisabeth Moss, the BBC said.

Burstyn, who will turn 78 in December, is to begin performances this January in the London production of Lillian Hellman's 1934 play, which is set in a New England boarding school.

Best known for her work in "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore" and "The Exorcist," Burstyn is to play the grandmother of a pupil at the school in "The Children's Hour," the BBC said.

The play also is to co-star Carol Kane and Tobias Menzies.
