As previously reported, Richard Schiff and Nigel Lindsay join Lohan for the production that begins previews Sept. 24 at the Playhouse Theatre prior to an official opening Oct. 2, for a limited run through Nov. 29 only.
"Just finished day 1 of rehearsals for Speed The Plow with my director Lindsay Posner and my co star Richard Schiff," the actress wrote. She also posed in a picture with the two, which Lohan shared on social media.

The play revolves around a pair of film producers Bobby Gould (Schiff) and Charlie Fox (Lindsay). When a hugely bankable star agrees to appear in a sure-fire commercial hit, they are convinced this is the break of a lifetime. That is until temporary secretary Karen (Lohan) derails the dream. When she persuades Bobby to dump the blockbuster in favor of a story which can only be described as box-office poison, Charlie is forced to resort to desperate measures.
Lindsay Lohan’s films include Disney's "The Parent Trap," "Herbie: Fully Loaded," "Freaky Friday," "Mean Girls," "Georgia Rule," Robert Altman's "A Prairie Home Companion" and Emilio Estevez's "Bobby." She has appeared in the TV series "Ugly Betty" and starred as Elizabeth Taylor in the biographical TV film "Liz & Dick."
The production is directed by Lindsay Posner, who has directed more Mamet plays in the West End than any other director, including A Life in the Theatre, Sexual Perversity in Chicago and Oleanna.
It is produced by Danny Moar and Simon Friend for Theatre Royal Bath Productions.
