LONDON - Lindsay Lohan is heading for the London stage — in a play about the hysteria of Hollywood.

Producers announced Thursday that Lohan will make her professional stage debut in September in David Mamet's satirical drama "Speed-the-Plow."

The "Mean Girls" and "Freaky Friday" star, who has had well-documented troubles with alcohol, drugs and the law, will take the relatively small but complex role of an ambitious secretary in Mamet's drama about two Hollywood producers trying to close a major deal.

In the original 1988 New York production the role was played by Madonna.

The 27-year-old former child star has had six stints in rehab and several brief periods in jail, and recently appeared in her own reality TV show. Her most recent movie was the universally panned "The Canyons."
