The play Blackrock is based on the rape and murder of year old Leigh Leigh in Victoria, Australia.
Nicholas Enright illustrates the possible dialogues between the murderer and rapist. The question he tries to answer is why did it take them such a long time to confess to there actions, what have they discussed to try and get away with it and most importantly what were their motives. The play is short and easy to read within an I read this book as it is on the reading list for my ATAR class. The play is short and easy to read within an hour. It is engaging, uses lots of slay and represents the nonstandard Australian accent well and really explores teenage behaviour.

Blackrock (film) – Wikipedia
Based on a true, gruesome story about a 14 year old who blackrpck raped and murdered. I am doing a group study on this for my drama class and honestly, it left me wondering what really happened, so I looked it up. It’s harsh, victim blaming at its finest, gruesome, but very interesting.
Jun 23, Jess rated it really liked it.
I read this for my English class. I knew straight away that I would enjoy this. The fact that it was the most realistic Australian text I’ve read in a long time helped.
It brought up a lot of questions of what I would personally do in that situation, how would I react etc. Good, short, excellent read. Apr 18, Sam rated it it was amazing. A harshly and brutally honest portrayal of Boackrock adolescence.
I read this play for acting class and gobbled it up. It’s incredibly honest and well crafted. It’s truly a must-read for anyone interested in the realities and issues that young Australians face. Jul 04, Ashleigh rated it did not like it Shelves: Had to read this in high school, didn’t like the story at all and the movie is almost just as bad. I don’t understand how anyone could think this is a good story. May 07, Kate Hutcherson rated it really liked it. Read this script for two classes at high school.
Was a very deep script which really opened up my eyes to the world that im about to venture into.
