About Stephen Ward

Stephen Ward, the new musical based on the events surrounding the Profumo Affair, with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and book and lyrics by Don Black and Christopher Hampton.
 
Stephen Ward deals with the victim of the Profumo Affair - not, as is widely supposed, John Profumo himself, the disgraced Minister for War, nor even the fatally wounded Conservative government of Harold Macmillan, but the society osteopath whose private libertarian experiments blew up in his own and everyone else's face. 
 
In a trial as emblematic to the twentieth century as Oscar Wilde's was to the nineteenth - from which he was the only protagonist to emerge with some dignity and honour - Ward became the targeted scapegoat of a furiously self-righteous Establishment. 
 
By no means a hero, he was a reluctant martyr, thanks to an unholy alliance between Press and police of a kind we can all too readily recognise today; inadvertently, he was the hinge between two worlds and the harbinger of a revolution in manners, music and morals when the ordered, stuffy, respectful universe of the fifties gave way to the classless, truculent, unstoppable sixties.
 
★★★★‘This grown-up, richly produced, strongly scored musical has a timeless  topicality. Bent coppers, lying  parliamentarians, a bed-hopping elite and grubby newspapermen. We haven’t changed much in  half a century’ Daily Mail  
 
★★★★‘Alexander Hanson is superb as Ward – charming, witty and handsome, but with a disconcerting hint of something less wholesome beneath. He sings superbly, too’ Daily Telegraph
 
★★★★‘Stuffed full of Lloyd Webber’s trademark stirring music’ Evening Standard 
 
 The cast for the world Premiere of Stephen Ward is led by Alexander Hanson (Stephen Ward), Charlotte Spencer (Christine Keeler), Charlotte Blackledge (Mandy Rice Davies), Anthony Calf (Lord Astor), Daniel Flynn (John Profumo) and Joanna Riding (Valerie).
