PLAYS AND PRODUCTIONS

During the most successful part of Gabrielle Ray's career she was involved in many plays and productions in London. She also toured the provinces, both before her fame arrived and after. This page lists all the productions I'm aware of. As time goes by I will add details and a page for each play hopefully with some pictures and a short plot synopsis depending on what materials I have available. If you know of any other productions Gabrielle Ray was in, particularly ones in the provinces at the start of her career or towards the end I'd love to hear from you.
