Lindsay Lohan officially cast in West End play Speed-The-Plow

Lindsay Lohan is officially set to make her West End debut in a new production of satirical drama Speed-The-Plow.

The Mean Girls star previously revealed she was in the running to tackle the role of Karen in the David Mamet play, and now her part has been confirmed - she will tread the boards at London's Playhouse Theater from 24 September to 29 November (14).

Lohan recently discussed the "potential" job with The New York Times, saying, "It's the first time I've done a stage play or anything like that. I'm nervous but I'm excited."

Other casting details have yet to be revealed, but director Lindsay Posner will take charge of the revival for the Theater Royal Bath.

Madonna previously played Karen in a Broadway revival of Speed-The-Plow in 1988.

Lohan will be hoping her London stage debut will give her acting career the boost it desperately needs after overcoming a series of personal issues and legal troubles, which resulted in a court-ordered spell in rehab last year (13).
