1963. The Scandal That Shook Society. Andrew Lloyd Webber's STEPHEN WARD the Musical. Performances from 3rd December.
STEPHEN WARD charts the rise and fall from grace of the man at the centre of the Profumo scandal.
Friend to film stars, spies, models, government ministers and aristocrats; his rise and ultimate disgrace coincided with the increasingly permissive lifestyle of London’s elite in the early 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.
Perfomances from 3rd December at the Aldwych Theatre, London
