Stephen Ward charts the fall from grace of the man at the centre of the Profumo scandal that topppled the Conservative government in 1963. Alexander Hanson stars as the friend to film stars, spies, models, government ministers and aristocrats, whose trial-by-press and ultimate disgrace were a trigger for the increasing permissiveness of the 1960s.
Written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Christopher Hampton and Don Black, and directed by Richard Eyre, the musical centres on Ward’s involvement with the young and beautiful Christine Keeler and their chance meeting in a West End night club, which led to one of the biggest political scandals and most famous trials of the 20th century.
