Description:
  Shakespeare in the Shadows is a postmodern take on a group of Shakespeare soliloquies, inspired by the drama, rhythm and musicality of the Bard’s prosody. In this mesmerizing minimalist montage, the aural aesthetics of stage actor Mark Cohen’s performance establish the film's dynamic, tempo, and tone.

The camera captures Cohen — who honed his craft at Royal Shakespeare Company affiliate Guildhall in London — performing a riveting one man show of the Bard’s most intriguing characters. From the storm tossed, supernatural world of "The Tempest" to the dank, dark corridors of Macbeth’s Dunsinane, Cohen and the camera collaborate in a celebration of Shakespeare’s poetry.

Set against San Francisco backdrops of swirling winds, wave pounded rocks, foreboding coastal promontories and stark film noir cityscapes, Shakespeare in the Shadows shows the power, the purity, and the simplicity of the master dramatist's work: its beauty and its excellence, its well-turned phrases, its pithy and its sardonic, its diminuendo and its crescendo, its whisper and its roar. Shakespeare in the Shadows commemorates the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s passing from the stage.
