Description

Much anticipated new show from ALW. A little racier this time (thanks in part to the book and lyrics by the well-regarded Christopher Hampton and the ever-present Don Black) this one features an unusual structure as well as some great set pieces certain to become ALW classics.

 

Stephen Ward charts the rise and fall from grace of the society osteopath. 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 1960’s. The musical centers 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 trials of the 20th century.
