Glenn Gould captured the imagination of a worldwide audience, becoming an instant celebrity with his eccentric performance style and his definitive renderings of Bach. David Young has used Gould's early and late recordings of The Goldberg Variations as a structural template for the acclaimed Glenn, his dramatic exploration of the music, ideas, and remarkable life of this iconoclastic and celebrated pianist, arguably the most important artist Canada has ever produced.

Glenn was first produced in 1992 by Necessary Angel Theatre at the duMaurier Theatre Centre and subsequently had numerous productions in Canada (including at the Stratford Festival) and overseas. It is the play upon which the film 32 Short Films About Glenn Gould was based.
