Lindsay Lohan Attempts Quitting Smoking Prior To SPEED-THE-PLOWScreen star and tabloid target Lindsay Lohan is set to make her West End debut this month in David Mamet's oft-revived drama SPEED-THE-PLOW and sources report the actress is attempting to distance herself from the ubiquitous nicotine addiction she is harboring in time for opening night.

Lohan recently stated of her debut, "I'll be freaking out on the first day. I either do really well under pressure of really horribly. There's no in between."

"Lindsay knows all eyes will be on her and she's worried if she starts to crave nicotine on stage, it'll put her off... Some people may not believe in the powers of hypnosis, or think it's all about swinging a watch about, but Lindsay is willing to try anything to make sure she's a hit," a source recently revealed.

Check out the original article on the matter here.

Additionally, Lohan utilized social media to post some behind the scenes shots of the production this weekend, commenting, "BrilliAnt actors at #work #speedtheplow @richard_schiff #lindsayposner and @nigellindsay1 good day! Also with #sundaytimes".

The official description of SPEED-THE-PLOW is as follows: "Danny Moar and Simon Friend for Theatre Royal Bath Productions presents Lindsay Lohan, Richard Schiff and Nigel Lindsay in Speed-the-Plow by David Mamet. When a hugely bankable star agrees to appear in a sure-fire commercial hit, film producers Bobby Gould (Richard Schiff) and Charlie Fox (Nigel Lindsay) are convinced this is the break of a lifetime. That is until Karen (Lindsay Lohan), a temporary secretary, 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... This brilliantly satirical portrayal of Hollywood is by David Mamet, the foremost playwright of his generation and the author of Glengarry Glen Ross, Oleanna and American Buffalo. A high-octane modern classic, Speed-The-Plow is filled with Mamet's trademark wit and mesmerising dialogue."
