With villagers showing distinctly homicidal tendencies, and his former associates hot on his trail, this bucolic dream is fast turning into a nightmare.
PERSONAL STATEMENT: Shakespeare’s Cake has been in development for four years now, and Moonstone has played a vital role in that process.

The lead role will be played by Damian Lewis (Band of Brothers, The Forsyte Saga, Dreamcatcher).
