New video trailer for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical Stephen Ward

Stephen Ward was a reluctant martyr, a bridge between the ruling class and the embryonic permissive society, who history now shows to have been an unintentional herald of the revolution in manners, music and morals that came to characterise the sixties.

Stephen Ward was the free-living high society osteopath who introduced the major players in the government-toppling 1963 Profumo sex-and-espionage scandal to each other. The musical that carries his name puts Ward’s account in the limelight, and discloses that it was he, not discredited Minister for War John Profumo, who was the actual victim of the affair.

The musical focuses on Ward’s involvement with the young and beautiful Christine Keeler and their opportunistic meeting in a West End night club, which led to one of the biggest political scandals and trials of the 20th century.
