Gabrielle Ray’s Stage Return.

It is announced that Miss Gabrielle Ray is to be the principle girl at the Prince’s Theatre, Bradford, at Christmas. Miss Ray was married on March 1, 1912, at Windsor, to Mr. Eric Raymond Loder, son of the late Mr. Alfred Loder and grandson of the late Sir Robert Loder, Bart. The marriage ended in the Divorce Courts in July of the following year when Mrs. Loder petitioned for restitution of conjugal rights. It was then disclosed that her husband had left her in the January previous and had not answered her appeal that he should return.

Babes in the Wood – Yorkshire Evening Post – 1920

A Stranger in Yorkshire

It is really refreshing to find somebody who is an absolute stranger to West Riding industrialism, and, on a first acquaintance, is finding it an interesting study. Miss Gabrielle Ray, returning to the stage by way of the Prince’s Theatre, Bradford, where she is playing Maid Marian, assures me that, to the best of her belief, Manchester is the nearest place where she ever appeared during her earlier experience. Almost all her work, of course, was done in London.
She was told, she says, by people who know comparatively little about it, that she would find Bradford cheerless, and Bradfordians inhospitable. Instead, she finds there is homeliness in granite setts, and that Yorkshire folk, though they may be blunt, make up for it by avoiding some of the sins of others who have a reputation for more elaborate courtesy. “At any rate,” says she, “they are not cattish.”
Another remark of Miss Ray’s may be of interest to the many who have admired her stage costumes. “Every woman,” she said, “ought to design her own clothes. If she has made any study of what suits her, nobody else can judge half so well. It must be awful to have to submit to other people’s ideas.”
“Unfortunately,” I ventured, “so many people must take what their purses permit.”
The answer was quick; “The prettiest and cleverest clothes,” she said, “aren’t those that cost most. A simple thing looks best for a woman who knows what to choose and how to wear it.”
