A British Classic. - Personal Services review by TonyCatman

Spoiler Alert
29/09/2019

Julie Walters heads a talented and quirky cast of unforgettable characters in this hilarious and often outrageous comedy loosely inspired  by a real events involving an alleged suburban brothel.

A tongue in check tale of how to make a living offering a personal service to those who need it but can’t get it at home, the British attitudes towards sex and the road to self discovery.

Sharply witty and equally poignant, prepare to laugh, be moved, cringe and then laugh until you choke by the climax.

Rediscover this forgotten gem. If you enjoyed ‘Wish You Were Here’ or ‘Rita Sue & Bob Too’ you will love this.
