Author to have the force with him in Stratford

Ian Hughes 22nd Oct, 2017

AUTHOR Ian Doescher will have the force with him in Stratford next week.

The author of the bestselling William Shakespeare’s Star Wars will be talking about the latest book in the series that re-imagines Star Wars Episode VII as a Shakespearean play, complete with monologues and theatrical stage directions.

He will also be signing copies of his new book at The Shakespeare Centre, Henley Street on Wednesday (October 25), starting at 5.30pm.

Ian said: “Appearing at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in 2014 was a personal highlight for me as an author – as a Shakespeare fan, it’s my Mecca. I am thrilled to be returning to Stratford, and on Saint Crispin’s Day, no less.”

Tickets are £5 and booking is essential.
