Sonnet 96


The New York Shakespeare Exchange Sonnet Project has the ambitious target of creating modern short-film interpretations of all 154 of Shakespeare’s Sonnets, set across various settings in New York City.

James Anthony wrote and directed this interpretation of Sonnet 96, starring Christopher Mason. It tells the story of Shakespeare’s romantic involvement with ‘The Fair Youth’ of the sonnet sequence, including the rebuttal of ‘The Dark Lady’ as seen in sonnets 40-42.
