This Hungry Churchyard; an Act VI, Scene I of "Romeo & Juliet"

It's three days after the demise of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers; the city is in mourning, Benvolio and Rosaline are heart-broken... but the two schemers have a plan. They've independently procured magical elixirs from the apothecary with hopes of bringing their beloveds back to life. But when they accidentally double-up their dosage, something goes wrong... horribly, deliciously wrong.
