It sounds like your tile is on a cement backerboard like WonderBoard or DuRock. They are composed of grey grainy concrete with a fiberglass mesh embedded in each surface. Is your "gray plaster" about 1/2" thick?

And I agree with Laurie. You're going to do a bit of work, and wind up with a well built shower that was obviously repaired. Not a lot of value there. But if you take out all the walls, you will be able to pick out new tile and wind up with a finished product that is worth all of the time and effort you invested.

Now go have some fun with that air chisel. (Don't foget your eye protection!)
