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 Bail Organa to Count Dooku.
Something is rotten in the state of Coruscant! The schemes of Emperor Palpatine come to fruition as Padmé Amidala, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, and the other Jedi duel against the clone troopers of General Grievious and the nascent Empire.
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.
"The writing's quite good; elaborate Elizabethan woodcuts (Chewbacca the Wookie with a Hamlet-style medieval cap holding a Game-of-Thrones-style banner) are just icing on the cake"-The Wall Street Journal
"Star Wars fans, Shakespeare fans and readers who delight in cleverness are sure to enjoy what Doescher has done with this popular story."-Deseret News
