THR — Currently on screens in ‘Mudbound,’ the Oscar-nominated actress will star at the Royal Court Theatre in Dennis Kelly’s single-character play, directed by Lyndsey Turner.
Carey Mulligan is returning to her London stage roots early next year in the world premiere of Girls & Boys.

The single-character drama is by Dennis Kelly, who scored a Tony nomination in 2013 for his book for Matilda: The Musical. The play traces the evolution of a relationship that begins with instant dislike when the couple first meet in an airport queue, followed by head-over-heels love, marriage and the challenges of juggling career and family, before everything starts to unravel and the protagonist’s life takes a disturbing turn.

Lyndsey Turner will direct the production, which begins previews Feb. 8 at the Royal Court Theatre, with an official opening set for Feb. 15. The limited engagement is scheduled through March 10.

The play marks a return for Mulligan to the Royal Court, where she appeared alongside Kristin Scott Thomas and Chiwetel Ejiofor in an acclaimed 2007 revival of The Seagull that later transferred to Broadway. She co-starred with Bill Nighy both in London and on Broadway in Stephen Daldry’s revival of the David Hare two-hander Skylight, for which both actors earned 2015 Tony nominations.

Mulligan received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress in 2010 for her breakout role in An Education. She stars in Dee Rees’ drama about racial violence in post-World War II Mississippi, Mudbound, which will be on Netflix and in theaters next Friday.
