Lindsay Posner directs Lindsay Lohan in David Mamet’s SPEED THE PLOW

Opening at The Playhouse Theatre in September – When a hugely bankable star agrees to appear in a sure-fire commercial hit, film producers Bobby Gould and Charlie Fox are convinced this is the break of a lifetime. That is until Karen (played by Lindsay Lohan), a temporary secretary, derails the dream. When she persuades Bobby to dump the blockbuster in favour of a story which can only be described as box-office poison, Charlie is forced to resort to desperate measures….

This brilliantly satirical portrayal of Hollywood is by David Mamet, the foremost playwright of his generation and the author ofGlengarry Glen Ross, Oleanna andAmerican Buffalo. A high-octane modern classic, Speed-The-Plow is filled with Mamet’s trademark wit and mesmerising dialogue.

Director Lindsay Posner has directed more plays by David Mamet in the West End than any other director, including: Oleannawith Julia Stiles and Aaron Eckhart,Sexual Perversity in Chicago with Matthew Perry, Minnie Driver and Kelly Reilly and A Life in the Theatre with Patrick Stewart and Joshua Jackson.
