Head to the Playhouse Theatre to catch Lindsay Lohan's highly anticipated stage debut in Speed-the-Plow

The acclaimed play by David Mamet first caused a buzz with audiences and critics alike when it opened in 1988. The three act work tells the story of two writers whose friendship is thrown into disarray when they decide to pitch their book to a Hollywood studio. To complicate matters, the duo end up as love rivals when they both attempt to sleep with their new employee, a temporary secretary played by Lohan. Betting each other 500 dollars that they will be the first to lure her into bed, their ungentlemanly plans come unstuck when it transpires that the secretary is not quite the easy conquest that they had assumed. 

A brilliant satire of the film industry, Mamet's work is brimming with acutely observed dialogue and subtle yet hilarious character traits. Combined with Lohan's appropriate Hollywood glamour, all the ingredients are here for thrilling theatre.
