Written by acclaimed playwright and screenwriter, Moira Bufni (Jane Eyre, Tamara Drewe) and created by Moira Bufni and Alison Newman, Harlots is the frst commission for Monumental Pictures, the independent company founded by Oscar nominated producers Alison Owen (Suffragette, Tulip Fever) and Debra Hayward (Bridget Jones’s Baby, Les Misérables).

In 1760s London there were brothels on every corner run by women who were both enterprising and tenacious. History has largely ignored them, but their stories are in turn outrageous, brutal, humorous and real.
