Glenn has a passion for social justice and social transformation, and relishes at finding the heart in a play that touches an audience today.
Having left school aged 16 Glenn went straight to work at the UK's leading talent agency Mark Jermin Management working as an assistant for 2 years, whilst freelance casting various fringe concerts in London. Aged 18, he made the move to London to work under Amanda Tabak CDG at Candid Casting as her assistant working across casting for commercials, TV and Film expanding his knowledge of British actors.
Glenn's passion for actors, and working with them stemmed from his period in casting, and so embarked on training as Director at The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama, and The Met Film School.

“A very good and upstaging piece of theatre.” - **** 'Modern Times'
''Director Glenn Gaunt makes the most of the minimalist staging, especially with a deliciously rude start to the second half'' - **** 'I Sing'
''This was by far the most polished and refined playlet of the night. The clear concept of these characters created a depth that was efficacious. '' - ***** 'Don't Cross Me'
