About this show

Shakespeare's comedy of mistaken identity, practical jokes, and unrequited love, Twelfth Night: Or What You Will, begins when shipwrecked twins Viola and Sebastian arrive independently in Illyria, both thinking the other is drowned. Viola disguises herself as a boy and finds employment with the Duke who is in love with Olivia. Malvolio is the subject of a cruel joke played on him by Sir Toby Belch -- yellow stockings cross-gartered -- leading him to believe that Olivia loves him. But Olivia has fallen in love with the disguised Viola, while she is in love with the Duke.
