Since 1985, the iconic film Back to the Future has been enjoyed by fans and celebrated across the pop culture spectrum. Now fans can experience Marty McFly’s tale of time travel penned in the style of the Bard of Avon in William Shakespeare’s Get Thee Back to the Future! (Quirk Books; April 23, 2019). New York Times best-selling William Shakespeare’s Star Wars series author Ian Doescher has reimagined this cult classic as a drama set on the Elizabethan stage, written in authentic iambic pentameter complete with stage directions.
Doescher skilfully uses the language of Shakespeare to tell the story of Marty’s journey back to 1955 in the plutonium-powered DeLorean, portraying Marty’s quest to unite his parents and save his family with humorous asides, engaging soliloquys, Easter eggs, and Shakespearean renditions of hit songs from the movie’s soundtrack, including “The Power of Love” by Huey Lewis and the News and Chuck Berry’s “Johnny B. Goode.” This matchless take on a beloved film will satisfy both fans of the Bard and Back to the Future.
