"Women can live far more comfortably with secrets don't you think?"

Adapted from the acclaimed short story by Man Brooker Prize Nominee Sarah Hall.

Starring Ania Sowinski (Eddie The Eagle), Dexter Fletcher (Lock Stock, Sunshine on Leith), Gwilym Lee (Jamestown, Bohemian Rhapsody), 2016 BAFTA Award Winner Chanel Cresswell (This Is England), Elizabeth Boag and 2018 BAFTA & ACADEMY Award Nominee Lesley Manville (Phantom Thread).

THE AGENCY is a modern and stylish take on middle-class female empowerment, amidst the social sub-culture described collectively as, "ladies who lunch".

Disillusioned with a decade of domesticity, housewife Hannah Baines (Ania Sowinski), is befriended by an enigmatic older woman Anthea - (LESLEY MANVILLE) who introduces a select and seductive, inner circle of women.

In confidence, Anthea recommends a private and reliable company who "can set up something marvellous" for her. Hannah contemplates the implications of attending her initial consultation, at THE AGENCY.
