Gladys Raymond – The Dairymaids – Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser – Monday 20th April 1908

Gladys Raymond - The Dairymaids - Manchester Courier and Lancashire General Advertiser - Monday 20 April 1908

PRINCE’S THEATRE.

“THE DAIRYMAIDS.”

Sandow Girls: Misses Flora Allen, Marjorie Bevys, Ethel Denny, Gwennie Devlin. Cicely Grey, Marjorie Manners, Lily Nanton. Mabel Newcombe. Gladys Raymond, Bell Ross, Muriel Varna. Doris Macintyre, and Ethel Lewis. The Four Little Strangers: Misses Molly Briggs, Agnes Glynne, Mary Glynne, and Ada White.

Mr. Courtneidge’s bright production “The Dairymaids,” needs no recommendation Manchester, and the audience at the Prince’s Theatre on Saturday night was worthy of the spirit with which the piece was played by a company that, at the conclusion its fortnight’s efforts in this city, goes direct to the Queen’s Theatre, Shaftesbury avenue for the London season. Since its last appearance in Manchester the company has lost nothing by the inclusion of Miss Phyllis Dare and Miss Florence Smithson in the cast. Miss Phyllis Dare is the embodiment of grace, and her winning ways found ample scope in the part Peggy. Miss Smithson was no less successful as Winifred, and her remarkable vocal gifts were rapturously received. Both ladies were the recipients during the evening of handsome bouquets. Miss Nell Emerald, as Eliza, displayed low comedy gifts to a degree rare in a woman, and Miss Phyllis Broughton made an excellent Lady Brudenell. The burden the fun fell on Mr. Dan Rolyat, who as Joe Mivens kept everybody in roars of laughter whenever he was the stage. Whether Mr. Rolyat will outlive the reputation he has achieved of possessing the most eloquent and most amusing pair of legs on the stage remains to be seen, but the sense of humour he infuses into his lines, though slightly reminiscent of Mr. George Robey, is none the less telling. Mr. E. Statham Staples made a great success of the part of Sam Brudenell, and the Dr. O’Byrne of Mr. Ambrose Manning was a sound and exhilarating study. The piece is splendidly dressed and mounted, and the new songs and new business that have been introduced all make for the improvement of a piece that was already most entertaining.

Gladys Raymond – Death Certificate

 

Gladys Raymond (Winnington) dies 21st August 1920 in the County Lunatic Asylum, Barnsley Hall, North Bromsgrove, Worcestershire. It’s interesting that her age was noted as 38 when she would have been 41; it is also sad to note that Gladys like her sister also died in a psychiatric hospital.
