Brighton follows the journey of Edward as he ventures to the famed English south coastal resort for a day on the town.

Masculinity. Femininity. Pansexuality. The inner thoughts of a young man named Devin as he tries to get a grip on his identity, his sexuality, and his relationships. This piece is entirely spoken word. No dialogue. Just poetry.
