New musical brings Profumo scandal back to life

London, Oct. 1 (ANI): A new West End production will be bringing back the story of the infamous 1960s Profumo Affair into the spotlight.

For the script, writer Andrew Lloyd Webber has rolled in Mandy Rice-Davies, who was one of the models involved in the British political scandal, to help him pen down the story, the Daily Express reported.

The project will chronicle the events after society figure and London osteopath Dr. Stephen Ward introduced John Profumo, former secretary of state for war, to showgirl Christine Keeler at a bash at Lord Astor's Cliveden home in Berkshire.

When the affair was exposed at the height of the Cold War in 1962, it was revealed that Keeler was the mistress of an alleged Soviet spy and Profumo had lied at the House of Commons, when he was questioned about it.

Ward was eventually charged with living off "immoral earnings", having allowed Keeler to live in his property.

On the last day of his trial, Ward took an overdose and was found guilty while in a coma before passing away three days later. (ANI)
