Oscar and Tony nominee Carey Mulligan is set to perform a new monologue play by Dennis Kelly at London’s Royal Court Theatre beginning February 8, 2018.
Titled Girls & Boys, the new play by the Matilda book writer is about a married woman and mother whose world has taken a disturbing turn.
Lyndsey Turner (Posh in the West End, Machinal on Broadway) will direct. Performances are scheduled to run through March 10 in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs.
Kelly also penned The Ritual Slaughter of Gorge Mastromas, seen at the Royal Court. On television, he wrote Pulling on BBC 3 as well as the six-part drama Utopia.
Mulligan is a Tony nominee for her performance as Kyra in the 2015 production of David Hare’s Skylight. Her other Broadway credit is the 2008 revival of Chekhov’s The Seagull, in which she played Nina. On screen, she has starred in the films An Education, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award, Drive, Suffragette, Never Let Me Go, and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, among others.
