Twelfth Night tells the tale of Viola, who has been tragically separated from her twin brother, Sebastian, during a shipwreck. Viola disguises herself as a boy and works for Duke Orsino, with whom she falls in love. Orsino is in love with the Countess Olivia, and sends Viola to court her for him, but Olivia falls for Viola instead. Sebastian arrives, causing a flood of mistaken identity. In short, Viola thinks her brother is dead. He thinks that she is dead. Everyone thinks that she is her brother. Everyone thinks that her brother is her. Shenanigans ensue.
