Experience the Star Wars saga reimagined as an Elizabethan drama penned by William Shakespeare himself, complete with authentic meter and verse, and theatrical monologues and dialog by everyone from Rey to Chewbacca.

As the noble Resistance clashes with the vile First Order, Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, Kylo Ren, and BB-8 are pulled into a galaxy-wide drama. The romance of Han Solo and Leia Organa takes a tragic turn that Shakespeare would approve of.

Authentic meter, stage directions, reimagined movie scenes and dialogue, and hidden Easter eggs throughout will entertain and impress fans of Star Wars and Shakespeare alike. Every scene and character from the film appears in the play, along with twenty woodcut-style illustrations that depict an Elizabethan version of the Star Wars galaxy.
Ian Doescher is the New York Times best-selling author of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars® series. He lives in Portland, Oregon, with his family. Visit him at IanDoescher.com.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful book Doescher seems highly underappreciated to me - his ability to mix Shakespeare and Star Wars is beyond the talent of many, and as much as it is parody, the writing does not feel forced or gimmicky. Sometimes his books even help me understand the new Star Wars films a little better..
