It’s been confirmed that Lindsay Lohan will star in David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow in London’s West End.

Lindsay Lohan In 'Speed-The-Plow'

In Speed-the-Plow, Lohan, 27, will play the role of Karen – a secretary looking to work her way up and not afraid to use her sexuality to do so. The part will mark Lohan’s professional theater debut.

Speed-the-Plow centers on two Hollywood film producers that are struggling to close a major deal. Mamet’s work of satire will be directed in its forthcoming West End production by Lindsay Posner.

In recent years, Lohan has struggled to return to her former glory as an actress, which saw her star in hits such as Freaky Friday and Mean Girls after becoming a household name as a child actress in 1998’s The Parent Trap. Her latest feature, The Canyons, received abysmal ratings, and rumors swirled about her poor work ethic on set. She also recently appeared on the small screen in OWN reality show, Lindsay.

Speed-the-Plow, which could mark the start of a comeback for Lohan, will open Oct. 2. It will run at the Playhouse Theatre in London through to Nov. 29.
