Speed-the-Plow

Multi award-winning movie star Lindsay Lohan takes her first ever stage role as Karen in David Mamet's brilliantly satirical portrayal of the Hollywood system, a part which was originally played in New York in 1988 by Madonna. Lindsay Posner, whose previous Mamet productions in London have been outstanding, directs.
Author of Glengarry Glen Ross, Oleanna and American Buffalo, Mamet is arguably the foremost playwright of his generation, and his high-octane modern classic Speed-the-Plow is replete with his trademark wit and mesmerising dialogue.
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 temporary secretary Karen 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.
