Publisher's Summary

Presented by the Online Stage.

This play, which bears an alternate title of What You Will, was written in about 1602. The plot consists of three basic strands:

  • The separation and eventual meeting of the identical twins Sebastian and Viola, each of whom believes the other to have perished
  • The triangular love relationship involving Olivia; her unsuccessful suitor, Duke Orsino; and Viola, masquerading as the duke's male attendant under the name of Cesario
  • A cruel and humiliating deception played upon Olivia's pompous steward, Malvolio, by Sir Toby Belch, Olivia's drunken uncle, and Maria, her maid

The inevitable confusion is eventually resolved by marriage contracts between Olivia and Sebastian, Orsino and Viola, and Sir Toby Belch and Maria while Malvolio storms off, swearing revenge on all the conspirators in his humiliation.

Twelfth Night has always been one of Shakespeare's most popular comedies, and many adaptations have been made for film and musical theatre.
