Paul Nicholas to star in KEELER - The inside story of the 'Profumo Affair' at Charing Cross Theatre from Oct 31

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

The inside story of the ‘Profumo Affair’
based on the book The Truth at Last by Christine Keeler

“Gill Adam’s play is brilliant - she tells it like it was” 
Christine Keeler

In 1963, the Secretary of State for War, John 'Jack' 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 a 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 who 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 biggest political sex scandal to rock the British nation in the 20th century.

Keeler will get a 6-week West End season at Charing Cross Theatre from Thursday October 31 to Saturday 14 December. 

Press night is Wednesday 6 November at 7.30pm.

The cast features Paul Nicholas as Stephen Ward, Sarah Armstrong as Christine Keeler 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.

Director Paul Nicholas,  Set Designer Charles Camm, Lighting Designer Mike Robertson, Costume Designer Jonathan Lipman.
