In celebration of The Last Jedi opening this week, Seattle Shakespeare Company is giving away 2 free copies of The Force Doth Awaken. Make sure you check your email to confirm your entry!
Experience The Force Awakens as a Shakespeare play, complete with Elizabethan verse, Shakespearean monologues, and theatrical stage directions! 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—in iambic pentameter! Star Wars fans and Shakespeare enthusiasts alike will enjoy the authentic meter, re-imagined movie scenes and dialogue, and hidden Easter eggs throughout. Chewbacca speaks! Leader Snoke gives a soliloquy! And the romance of Han Solo and Leia Organa takes a tragic turn that Shakespeare would approve of. All with woodcut-style illustrations that place Star Wars characters into an Elizabethan galaxy. The story may take place in a galaxy far, far away, but you might just be convinced it was written by the Bard.
