There are two sides to every
story, and this one is by the person who was actually there... at the centre of
the biggest political sex scandal of the 20th century
In 1963, the Secretary of State for War, John 'Jack'Â Profumo, was forced to
resign after it was established that he had lied to Parliament about the nature
of his relationship with a young showgirl, Christine Keeler. She was also
involved with aÂ Russian spy during her affair with the Secretary of State. The
ensuing scandal was in part responsible for the resignation of the Prime
Minister, Harold Macmillan, and the suicide of the man whoÂ introduced Keeler to
Profumo, Stephen Ward.
Based on the 2001 autobiography The Truth At Last by Christine Keeler with
Douglas Thompson, Keeler, written by Gill Adams, reveals the sensational inside
story of the infamous Profumo Affair: the biggestÂ political sex scandal to rock
the British nation in the 20th century.
The cast features Paul Nicholas as Stephen Ward, Sarah Armstrong as Christine
Keeler (both pictured above), with Stacy Leeson (Mandy), Alex Dower (Eugene),
Michael Good (Profumo), Andrew Harrison (Lord Astor), Marcus Adolphy (Lucky
Gordon), Hannah Gordon (Doris), Carina Birrell, Stephen Joseph.
