Gail's professional career began in 1980 at The Royal Lyceum Theatre Edinburgh and has spanned a diverse and exciting breadth of theatre work, stage managing at many repertory theatres, including The Royal Court, Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Derby Playhouse and The Haymarket Theatre, Leicester. During this time she also had the opportunity to tour small and middle scale productions nationally.

After returning to Scotland, she worked freelance as a stage/production manager, workshop leader, events manager, sound engineer and part time lecturer at Dundee College. Her interests in youth and community work led her to direct seven productions in Fife and Tayside.

She then took up a full time position as Stage Management Lecturer at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh where she worked for 15 years contributing to building a very successful Stage Management course. She continued to provide vocational training in Stage Management at Fife College and is currently a freelance Stage Management trainer.

Her research interests include creativity in stage management and developing software for training stage managers in cueing techniques. She continues to develop her production experience through company and events management, was a board member for the Stage Management Association, and is now a Trustee at Pitlochry Festival Theatre.

Recently she and her partner have successfully developed innovative new software for training show callers (CallQ).
