This play only had a short run at the New Wimbledon Theatre (above), and sadly no reviewers were in.
Gaby is an employment advisor looking after Job Seekers. She is transferred for temporary cover from the Worthing to the Brighton office, where she is surprised to find so many unemployed artists. Seeing a marketing opportunity, Gaby works with a group of artists to their mutual advantage. However she doesn't plan for the full devious nature and entrepreneurial extremes of some of the group and without her knowledge she becomes an overnight worldwide celebrity.
A new version of Gaby goes Global was produced at the New Venture Theatre, Bedford Place, Brighton, on 6–13 November 2010, directed by Ian Black.
