Orphaned twins, shipwrecks, love triangles and more ……

Viola, separated from her twin Sebastian in a shipwreck, finds herself in Illyria, where she dresses as a boy (Cesario) to work for the Duke Orsino, whom she falls in love with. Orsino is in love with the Countess Olivia and sends Viola to court her for him, but Olivia falls in love with Viola instead. Meanwhile, members of Olivia’s household plot against her pompous and puritanical steward, Malvolio.

Olivia’s uncle Sir Toby Belch, her servant Maria, and Sir Toby’s friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek (who also hopes to marry Olivia) use a letter to trick Malvolio into believing Olivia loves him, and eventually have him locked up as a madman! When Sebastian arrives in Illyria, Olivia mistakes him for Viola and marries him. Antonio, who saved him, is arrested as an enemy of the state. 

All will become clear as the plot progresses!
