Lindsay Lohan forgot her lines during the Wednesday night opening of David Mamet’s "Speed-the-Plow" at London’s Playhouse Theater.

According to Vulture.com, Lohan, who played a temp secretary to the head of a Hollywood studio, did great in the first act. The theater was filled but not packed, and the audience was genial.

"She looked great, and she hit every cue. At the first intermission, the audience was firmly on her side," it wrote.

In the second act, however, "Lohan forgot a line, and then — less forgivably — broke character briefly to laugh when the line was whispered from the wings. By the end of her monologue she had been fed four lines, and a fifth prompt arrived before the act's close. It happened so frequently that it felt like the person calling out the script from behind the scenes had become another character in the play."

The New York Daily News reported that, in addition to being fed lines, Lohan also relied on a stage-prop book that had some of her lines written in it.

The 28-year-old former child star was apparently not the only one to forget a line, several publications noted, as the far more seasoned Richard Schiff also asked for one near the beginning of the play. British actor Nigel Lindsay was the only one of the three who didn't have to ask for a prompt throughout the course of the production.

The three-person play is known as a challenging one for actors, and director Lindsay Posner told The Independent U.K. that for being primarily a screen actor, Lohan has learned how to do theater remarkably fast.

"I'm pleased to say Lindsay has taken to the process faster than any other debut actor that I've worked with," she said.

Several people on Twitter who claimed to have been at the play offered Lohan their sympathy, while others indulged in a little schadenfreude.
