Paxton

About 11km south-west of Cessnock in the Hunter Valley west of Newcastle - the renowned wine and horse stud region - Paxton gives easy access to the delights of this sophisticated part of the world. There are world-class wineries in abundance, great restaurants and cafes, along with art and craft galleries. And then there are the manicured studs that continue to produce much of the cream of Australia's race tracks. You can inspect most of the larger wineries and quite a few of the horse studs.

Paxton lies about midway between the coal city of Cessnock and historic Wollombi, staging post in the days when Cobb & Co plied the old north road. The village of Paxton developed round the pithead of Stainford Main No 2 Colliery.

A turn to the right at the top of a hill just beyond the Paxton Hotel on the road north-east to Ellalong takes you into the Congewai Valley which was once the personal domain of settler Thomas Crawford. Beyond Ellalong, the road which skirts the Aberdare State Forest on the loop back to the Wollombi Road presents views across the Ellalong Swamp to the Watagan Mountains.

Ladies Night


The story of four unemployed guys, motivated by 'The Chippendales' to form a male stripping act, in order to make some fast cash. They pitch the notion to a local club owner and take lessons from a slightly shop-worn, dance instructor with a heart-of-gold in all manner of things, including what women really want from a male stripper (and how to deliver it).

Written in 1987, by Anthony McCarten and Stephen Sinclair, Ladies Night has been translated into twelve languages and remains New Zealand's most commercially successful play, of all time.
With eight sell-out tours of Britain and the U.K, it won France's premiere theatre award for comedy- The Moli?re Prize, in 2001.

Ladies Night will leave you hyperactive and ready to party! It's the kind of show that you can take your granny to ... Cheeky, fun, a little bit naughty - and a damn good giggle.

4000 Miles


21-year-old Leo rocks up unannounced at the Manhattan apartment of his 91-year-old Jewish grandmother Vera. Having broken up with his girlfriend and cycled across the country, he needs a place to crash for the night, no questions asked. But Vera - prickly, stubborn and sharp as a tack - isn't about to let him off that easily.

As an overnight couch-surf turns into an extended stay, 4000 Miles unearths a surprising parallel between these two generations in this emotionally compelling drama. With disarming frankness and surprising candour, the two negotiate social potholes and trace emotional fault lines that link them to a painful family history.

From one of America's brightest playwrights, this compassionate and unsentimental play explores the funny, frustrating, and ultimately life-changing relationship between a grandson learning to face his life, and a grandmother who is starting to forget hers.
