Twelfth Night archiveOr What You Will. Shakespeare comedy of mistaken identity, practical jokes and unrequited love. Rescued from a shipwreck the twins Viola and Sebastian arrive independently in Illyria, both thinking the other is drowned. Viola disguises herself as a boy and finds employment with the Duke who is in love with Olivia. Malvolio is the subject of a cruel joke played on him by Sir Toby Belch (yellow stockings cross-gartered) leading him to believe that Olivia loves him. But Olivia has fallen in love with the disguised Viola, while she is in love with the Duke (following it so far?!). To mark the celebration of the Quartercentury of the first recorded performance of William Shaekspeare's Twelfth Night. On Feb 2nd 1602, Twelfth Night was performed in Middle Temple Hall by the Lord Chamberlain's Men, who crossed the river from the original Globe Playhouse to present their play. It is believed that the play was commissioned for performance in this place and so was a true Shakespearean first night!
