Blackrock - Seymour Centre
The Seymour Centre and White Box Theatre are pleased to present the gripping and controversial drama, BLACKROCK, as part of the Reginald Season from 9th to 25th March.

Written by award-winning Australian playwright Nick Enright (A Man With Five Children, Cloudstreet, The Boy From Oz and the Academy Award-nominated screenplay, Lorenzo"s Oil), BLACKROCK was adapted from his original play, A Property of the Clan, and was inspired by the 1989 murder of Leigh Leigh in Stockton.

In BLACKROCK, it"s Toby Ackland"s birthday party near the surf club"”and that should mean heaps of grog, drugs and good clean fun. But by the morning, a young girl is dead"”raped by three boys and bashed with a rock.

BLACKROCK was a confronting piece of work when it first premiered in 1995, going on to win the AWGIE Award for best play in 1996, and to be developed into a feature film. A stunning exploration of Australian youth culture, our viewing of women in society and what it is to be a "man", BLACKROCK is a powerful Australian classic that remains startlingly relevant in 2017.
