One of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies, Twelfth Night is a madcap tale of mistaken identity and unrequited love.  After a shipwreck, twins Sebastian and Viola become stranded — and separated —  on the island kingdom of Illyria.  To survive, Viola disguises herself as a boy (Cesario), so she can work for the nobleman Orsino, whom she secretly loves.  Her new identity piques the romantic interest of the Lady Olivia, who is being courted by Orsino.  When Viola’s long-lost brother shows up and is mistaken by Olivia as Cesario, the love triangle becomes even more delightfully entangled.
