Joseph Bray (17**-18**) was a Cape Town businessman resident in Strand Street no 26 and theatre lover.

He was one of the original 24 shareholders, to whom a section of the Boerenplein ("Farmer's Square", also known as Hottentot's Square or Van Riebeeck Square) was donated by Sir George Yonge for the building of a theatre, which was to become The African Theatre.

Bray later followed E. van Nuldt Onkruydt as the Treasurer of the committee which originally ran the African Theatre from 1801, under the chairmanship of the Governor of the Cape. *
