Carey Mulligan is returning to the New York stage this spring — and she’ll be losing her mind.
The elfin star of An Education is set to star in an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s 1961 film, Through a Glass Darkly. The adaptation is set to premiere off-Broadway starting May 13.
The 25-year-old actress will play an intense young woman harrowed by psychiatric illness who spirals out of control while on holiday with her husband, father and brother.
Jokes the Oscar-nominated star: “Everyone wants to play someone with a problem.”
The play will be at the Atlantic Theater Company. The rest of the cast will be announced later.
