BRIGHTON. A typical day in Brighton during 2005 when two working class couples – Derek and Dinah, Dave and Doreen are on a day trip to the beach. But Brighton is changing, and the friends can’t keep up. The result is a vengeful act of violence that exposes the gaps and similarities between class, gender and sexual orientations.
The troubled characters have lived in a bubble for far too long and when they return to the place where they met their partners it’s a dramatic shock how Brighton – the town they knew and loved – isn’t the same. Brighton compassionately explores the mutual incomprehension inherent in the divide between the middle and working classes. This comedy / drama, which takes place in 2005 and 1960, is as relevant today and it was then.
