Twelfth Night is a story of unrequited love - both hilarious and heartbreaking. Viola is shipwrecked on the shore of a strange country. She disguises herself so that she might serve Orsino, the Duke. While Viola falls for the Duke, he pines after the fair Olivia, who mourns the deaths of her father and brother.
While she mourns, her uncle and a sprendthrift knight who failed to woo her wreak havoc in the house. Their debauchery ensares the wrath of the tight-collared and arrogant steward, Malvolio, and they plot their revenge. Meanwhile, Viola's brother Sebastian, presumed drowned in the shipwreck that delivered her to Illyria, is alive and with an infamous pirate in tow. In Shakespeare's comedic masterwork, "nothing that is so is so."
