Aspects of that scandal appear here, but this play is not about Profumo or Christine Keeler or any of the well-known actors in that well-rehearsed drama. It is, rather, about events behind the scenes, about the wider rumours and scandals the affair forced into the light and, finally, the seismic cultural shift it helped unleash.Stirred up by the resentments over Suez, by CND, the Angry Young Men and even the frenzy of 1963s Beatlemania, the three young men who ran Private Eye helped to lift up the stone of the British establishment and, to the horrified but fascinated gaze of the nation, to reveal the frantic creepy crawlies that had lain there undetected for years.

With Profumos demise, the swelling tide of scorn and resentment for age, tradition and authority, the poisonous fantasy of limitless corruption into which it had ripened, was finally let loose in all its fury.
