By William Shakespeare One of Shakespeare’s most famous and beloved comedies, Twelfth Night tells the tale of Viola, a young gentlewoman of Messina shipwrecked on the shore of the fantastical country of Illyria. She disguises herself as a boy in order to gain a position in the court of Illyria’s ruler, the lovesick Duke Orsino. Here, her wit, her ingenuity, and her heart are taxed to the utmost when Viola finds herself falling in love with the Duke while being tasked with wooing the Countess Olivia on his behalf. Romantic intrigues, mistaken identities, danger, duels, high-flown witticisms and lowdown hijinks – whatever you will, Twelfth Night has something for you.
