The Gigolos

A highly original comedy set in London’s male escort scene.

A highly original and understated comedy set in London’s male escort scene. The smooth and charming Sacha is a favourite among the wealthy but lonely over-50s (his ‘regulars’ played by Susannah York, Anna Massey, Sian Phillips and Angela Pleasance). When an injury puts Sacha out of action, his younger live-in valet and manager Trevor stands in, with consequences that shake up their close and dependent partnership.
