Last seen on Broadway in 2015, Carey Mulligan will return to the New York City stage June 12 in the Off-Broadway premiere of Dennis Kelly's monologue play Girls & Boys. The acclaimed production from London’s Royal Court Theatre will begin performances June 12 at the Minetta Lane Theatre, where it will play a limited, five-week engagement produced by Audible.
In the video above, the Oscar and Tony nominee talks about the play's “dark turns,” the challenges of performing a solo piece and how it affects her relationship with the audience, and why she couldn’t wait to bring the show to NYC.
Girls & Boys, directed by Olivier Award winner Lyndsey Turner (Chimerica, Posh), is about a married woman and mother whose world has taken a disturbing turn. The play debuted in London in February, and will officially open Off-Broadway June 20.
