Girls and Boys Summary

Girls and Boys by Dennis Kelly

A piece that takes us on an extraordinary journey... The energy and the vividness of the writing never lets up - Independent An unexpected meeting at an airport leads to an intense, passionate, head-over-heels relationship. Before long they begin to settle down, buy a house, juggle careers, have kids - theirs is an ordinary family. But then their world starts to unravel and things take a disturbing turn. A tragic, violent look at parenthood and trauma, Denis Kelly's stirring monologue play premiered at The Royal Court Theatre in 2018 starring Carey Mulligan. Published for the first time in Methuen Drama's Modern Classics series, this edition features a new introduction by David Pattie.

A piece that takes us on an extraordinary journey... The energy and the vividness of the writing never lets up * Independent *
Uncomfortable, unsettling Carey Mulligan delivers Dennis Kelly's monologue with brazing intensity... It's a piece that nags away at you after you have left the theatre * Financial Times *
This is the most moving play that I've seen for years: what does new writing perfection look like? It looks like this! * Aleks Sierz, The Arts Desk *
