Shakespeare’s Sonnets features specially filmed readings of every sonnet by a star-studded cast.

New performances were filmed of all 154 sonnets by a stellar cast including Sir Patrick Stewart, Kim Cattrall, David Tennant, Simon Russell Beale, Dominic West, Siân Phillips, Fiona Shaw, Dame Harriet Walter, Simon Callow, Stephen Fry, and poets Don Paterson and Sir Andrew Motion. We also shot extended interviews with leading scholars including Professors Katherine Duncan-Jones, James Shapiro and Henry Woudhuysen.

John Wyver is a writer and producer with Illuminations. His recent films include The Art of Francis Bacon and the art road trip series Artland; in production are documentaries with Anthony Caro and Conrad Shawcross, together with an Arena about British cinema of the 1940s and 1950s. His book Vision On: Film, Television and the Arts in Britain will be published by Wallflower in October 2007.
