Stephen Ward

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.

'Time to can that cliché about Andrew Lloyd Webber being middle class twee. This grown-up, richly produced, strongly scored musical has timeless topicality. Bent coppers, lying parliamentarians, a bed-hopping elite and grubby newspapermen. We haven’t changed much in half a century. This is a powerful musical, well worth seeing.'
Quentin Letts, Daily Mail

'A funny, tuneful, touching musical about sex and scandal in smart places'
Georgina Brown, The Mail on Sunday

'The show is stuffed full of Lloyd Webber’s trademark stirring music'
Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard

'Highly enjoyable. We’ve never seen Andrew Lloyd Webber so mischievous'
Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph
