Carey Mulligan is set to return to the New York stage this spring in an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s 1961 film Through a Glass Darkly, the AP reports. The show will premiere off-Broadway beginning May 13. Mulligan, 25, will portray a young woman who loses her mind because of a psychiatric illness and spirals out of control during a vacation to Sweden with her husband, father, and brother. “It’s an incredible descent into insanity,” Mulligan told the AP. “It’s horribly scary and I have no idea what I’m going to do.” Mulligan added: “Everyone wants to play someone with a problem.” Mulligan broke out in 2009’s An Education, for which she garnered an Oscar nomination. In 2010, she starred in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and Never Let Me Go. Mulligan recently starred on the New York stage in the 2008 revival of The Seagull.
