Synopsis

Four of the Bard’s characters wait for an overdue flight to London. When Romeo reveals that he plans to revenge himself upon Shakespeare, who he blames for ruining his life, by killing him in a duel, it's up to the others—Titania, Viola and Antipholus—to save their creator by convincing Romeo that Shakespeare “does indeed love love.” But as they recall scenes from their own plays as evidence, will it be all's well that ends well, or is Romeo headed for more tragedy?
