'Gill Adams' script for Keeler is brilliant – she tells it like it was' Christine Keeler
Charing Cross Theatre, London
Directed by and starring Paul Nicholas, Keeler is based on the 2001 autobiography 'The Truth At Last' by Christine Keeler with Douglas Thompson.
Gill Adams’ play, with Christine Keeler's sanction and involvement, reveals the sensational inside story of the infamous Profumo affair - Britain's biggest political sex scandal of the 20th Century.
In 1963, John 'Jack' Profumo, the Secretary of State for war, was forced to resign after it was revealed that he had lied to the House about the nature of his relationship with a young showgirl Christine Keeler. Keeler was also involved with a Russian spy at the same time. The scandal that followed was partly responsible for the resignation of the Prime Minister Harold Macmillan and the suicide of Stephen Ward, the man who introduced Keeler to Profumo.
