I'm afraid no grass variety will grow in deep shade. Fescues are the most shade tolerant but even these will need to be reseeded every 2 years. A better solution is to plant a shade loving groundcover rather than turfgrass. A groundcover such as pachysandra or vinca are good plants for shady areas.
