About Twelfth Night:

A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia’s uptight housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible.

Our Twelfth Night Review

The headline news about the National's new production of Twelfth Night has, of course, been the re-gendered casting of Malvolio as Malvolia, with Tamsin Greig assuming the mantle of the romantically deluded servant infatuated by her mistress, so Malvolia turns out to be a lesbian.
