What if Romeo and Juliet lived happily ever after? What if Blanche Dubois didn’t go crazy? When two unseen characters from classic literature – Bunbury (The Importance of Being Earnest) and Rosaline (Romeo and Juliet) – join forces and sweep through time and literature to change their fate and potentially the future of the world. Together they infiltrate and alter classic literature, including giving Romeo and Juliet a happy ending. As they travel among classic literature, Bunbury realizes what they’ve done. They embark on a mission to correct their correction and help Bunbury prove that even if he is fictional, he’s not a trivial character, nor is anyone else in the world.
