Carey mulligan boys and girls
Girls & Boys by Dennis KellyI listened to Girls & Boys as an audiobook read by Carey Mulligan. (Its more accurate to say she acted it out--it was performed by Carey Mulligan because I could visualize every word she said.) I first listened to the sample, which was, quite possibly, the funniest snippet of an audiobook Ive ever heard--and spot on as far as human nature goes...so I bought it, not really reading what this play was about. To be honest, it was Carey Mulligan that attracted me to the monologue. I saw her featured as the narrator--a recommendation from an Audible editor named Sam. The whole thing is only about 90 minutes--the length of a movie and I had time for that so I downloaded it.
It is not a funny story.
Its a story of survival.
Its a tale of violence and heartbreak.
And it feels real--disturbingly, horrifyingly real.
At one point, the narrator says that what shes about to tell you is not happening to you, and you think, Oh, thats not--thats not good. Her warning, I found, was necessary. It gave me just enough distance to be able to hang on until that part was over. Just enough. Barely.
Im not sure that I agree with all the conclusions that the author came to in this play. Some of it rings true, while other things are debatable. What I found absolutely brave was that Dennis Kelly had the nerve to ask those questions. The balls.
Carey Mulligan should win awards for this. Dennis Kelly should win awards for this. I know its something that will stick with me forever.

‘Girls & Boys’ Theater Review: Carey Mulligan Says the Kids Aren’t All Right
The woman with the raw, luminous face has a story she wants to tell you. Because this woman is portrayed with unswerving focus by Carey Mulligan, one of the most compelling stage actresses of her generation, there is never any question of her not succeeding in this mission. Mulligan is the entire cast, you are unconditionally hers. Kelly is one lucky playwright to have had her as his interpreter. There are reasons, needless to say, that she poses this question, including one of devastating relevance to her.
The play tells the story of a woman whose world has taken a disturbing turn. The solo play is directed by Olivier Award winner Lyndsey Turner Chimerica, Posh and is a co-production with Audible, which will release Mulligan's performance as an audio play following the run.

C arey Mulligan has had quite a week. She is a joy to watch; only later did I find myself asking serious questions of the play itself. Mulligan plays an unnamed woman can characters please have monikers? We are instantly intrigued, as we are by the next scene, which shows the woman as a harassed young mum coping with two unseen children who have the luck to be named as Leanne and Danny. This alternation of confessional chat and pressurised domesticity continues throughout the piece. Mulligan is brilliant at engaging with the audience and charting the gradations of the relationship with the husband. He runs a thriving business importing antique wardrobes; she cons her way into a job as a development executive in TV documentaries.
Marc Brenner. Stage narrators tend to be unreliable. As played to aching, bruised perfection by Carey Mulligan, the unnamed Woman takes us on a journey into darkness that we hope will turn out to be an elaborate lie—but know is not. Audible has taken up residence at the Minetta Lane Theatre and, judging by this piece and the previous one, Harry Clarke , they have excellent taste, choosing suspenseful, layered narratives that reward close listening. The Woman occupies two spaces: standing before a solid blue wall, telling the story of her marriage, and miming flashback scenes with her toddlers in swimmy turquoise interiors. With her contrasting ensemble of mustard blouse and burgundy slacks and hair pulled back, Mulligan cuts a vaguely androgynous figure against an azure field. A woman enveloped by male energy.
