Description - Blackrock (Play) by Nick Enright

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 the morning a young girl is dead-raped by three boys and bashed with a rock. Who is responsible? The boy? The girl? Or the whole town. Blackrock is an intimate and strongly shaped human drama which examines the social forces behind the impulse to violence in individual lives.
