The Laureate

Brighton

A typical day in Brighton during the mid 1980’s; two working class couples Derek & Dinah, Dave & Doreen are on a day trip to the beach. But Brighton is changing, & the friends can’t keep up. The result is a vengeful act of violence that exposes the gaps & similarities between class, gender & sexual orientations. Brighton Beach compassionately explores the mutual incomprehension inherent in the divide between the middle and working classes. “We might call them yobs & laugh at their Neanderthal struggles with existence,” Berkoff says, “but within there is an awful sadness as they try to claw happiness out of their day.
