When From Here to Eternity was published in the Fifties, and turned into an Oscar-winning film starring Burt Lancaster, its homosexual content was excised by censors.

Sir Tim Rice who is transforming the story, set in the Second World War, into a West End musical, tells Mandrake that he will restore the homosexual subtext to its rightful place.

“Obviously, things have moved on in terms of what you can portray over the last 60 years, and the production will reflect that,” says the award-winning lyricist.

“It is not going to be a 'gay’ musical because it is not centred around the homosexual elements.

However, we have the rights to the book not the film and it is an aspect of the book.
