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.
Andrew Lloyd Webber's musical, with book and lyrics by Christopher Hampton and Don Black, centres on Ward's involvement with the young and beautiful Christine Keeler, which led to one of the biggest political scandals and most famous trials of the twentieth century.
Stephen Ward premiered at the Aldwych Theatre, London, in December 2013.
