You wait ages for a Profumo-themed show, and then two come along at once.

Richard Eyre is currently busy rehearsing Andrew Lloyd Webber’s new musical Stephen Ward, which centres on the society Osteopath at the heart of the very British 60’s scandal the Profumo Affair for a forthcoming Aldwych Theatre opening.

But over at the Charing Cross Theatre Keeler mania is in the shape of a new play by Gill Adams based on Christine Keeler’s autobiography The Truth At Last. With veteran performer Paul Nicholas as Stephen Ward, Sarah Armstrong as Christine Keeler and Stacy Leeson as Mandy Rice-Davies, this Paul Nicholas-directed play promises to give ALW’s show a run for its money.
