The next production by the Essendon Theatre Company is “Blackrock” by Nick Enright, Directed by Rachael Holt
It’s Toby Ackland’s birthday party down near the Surf Club – and that should mean heaps of grog, drugs and good clean fun. But by morning, a young girl is dead- she’s been raped by three boys and bashed with a rock. Who is responsible?
The boy? The girl? Or the whole town.
An Intimate and strongly shaped dama which examines the social forces behind the impulse to violence in individual lives.
There is no physical violence in the play, it is depicted through the dialogue. There is however very strong language and themes.
The play takes place in the present day, between late November of one year and early January of the next, in an Australian industrial city and its beachside suburb of Blackrock.
