Love makes fools of us all in Shakespeare’s celebrated comedy, Twelfth Night, while blurring
the lines between gender, identity and love. Twins Sebastian and Viola are shipwrecked off the
coast of Illyria, separated and believing each to be dead. Viola, disguised as a boy, serves
Duke Orsino and is sent to woo the Countess Olivia on his behalf. Olivia falls in love with the
cross-dressed page while Viola loves Orsino; and mischievous servants play pranks at each
other’s expense. Chaos of mistaken identity ensues, finally resolved in marriage as twins and
lovers are reunited.
