A La Boite and QUT Creative Industries Production

A party on the beach, drugs, booze and surf. But by morning a young woman lies dead on the sand, beaten and raped. Who is responsible? This incredible human drama examines the social impulse to violence within Australian culture, within young males, within us all.

Blackrock, Nick Enright’s hard-hitting modern classic, is one of those plays that grabs you and does not let go. Blackrock builds on several interlocking themes, first of sexual violence, of class and generational conflict, and the difference between a friend and a mate.

This unique collaboration between La Boite and QUT Creative Industries sees the next generation of actors, QUT Bachelor of Fine Arts Final Year Acting Students take on the iconic young roles alongside an ensemble of professional actors.
