Cathy Bray - Inappropriate at Madam Fling Flongs

September 16, 2012 from 7pm to 8pm
Inappropriate - Cathy Bray returns for her third Sydney Fringe solo of poetry and merriment and finds, yet again, her work appears nowhere in the list of Event Categories. Luckily the Event Themes: 'Australian Comedy Political Revue Solo Spoof Satire' pretty much describes Inappropriate, her 3rd show for the Sydney Fringe festival. As in past years, preambles, rants, smirks and gentle kick-arse asides, provide the context for the poems. Patrons at Madam Fling Flong (a salon in Newtown), can…See More

Cathy Bray's Blog

Cathy Bray's eighth memorial attempt at a blog - very hard if you keep forgetting your password. Luddites unite!

The 19 year old is back on mid-semester break from WAAPA Musical Theatre and very short of funds...hence an afternoon devoted to the creation of my shiny new tumblr 'may its tribe increase' - I won't tell if you won't, if you know this is from Abou Ben Adam

Hi Cathy, and welcome to the Sydney Poetry social site. You are member #152.

This is a social site that is built by the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds) for the poets (and friends) of Sydney (and surrounds).

You can add your own photos, videos and events. You can write blog posts, or start topics in the forum. You can also add your own poetry to the site in the Member's Poetry section. Or you can just keep an eye on what's happening.

There's no membership fee and no middlewoman – there is though just a bit of moderation to keep it clean and on-topic.

Have a read of the welcome note (if you haven't checked it out already) to find out more. Although the site is just starting up I hope you enjoy what you already find here, and if you do, please feel free to invite other poets (and teachers, readers, writers, performers) you know to join.

Also please introduce yourself, what you write, what you read etc with a few words in the editable text box on your profile page (and, if you're in the mood, add an image for your avatar).

Best wishes,

Dear Cathy,

Must say if my brilliance started at 13 it took a long while to manifest itself. As for acral melanoma ... very unusual & most GPs don't see it. the Specialist who cut the flesh of my left heel off is writing a paper about it - s'ppose I'll be 'patient Y'... just when I thought I was going to get into print again! I'm beginning to get about now, without being able to walk long distances, & stairs, like the ones at the Friend in hand, would give me trouble. But I'm alive, & inflicting poems on the world. I was poet in residence at Broken Hill late-mid 2011 for 2 weeks, & was there a year or so ago for a week, & got to know some of the poets in the pub - but when I was there it wasn't operative, & Marvis from the library was having some trouble getting it together at the time. Thank you
