As with most Shakespeare comedies, Twelfth Night deals with lots of mistaken identity. Viola is shipwrecked and loses sight of her twin brother, Sebastian. She masquerades as a young page for Duke Orsino until she can fi nd her brother. The duke takes her in as a confi dant to help him court Lady Olivia. But Olivia has developed a fancy for Orsino’s new page. Meanwhile, Viola falls in love with her master, who still believes she is a man. The love triangles become more complex as the steward Malvolio believes Lady Olivia is really secretly in love with him. All is fi nally revealed when Sebastian returns and marries Lady Olivia, who mistakes him for Viola disguised as the page.
