Twins Sebastian and Viola are shipwrecked on the coast of Illyria, separated and believing each other to be dead. Beside herself with grief, Viola disguises herself as a boy and goes into the service of the Duke Orsino. The Duke, madly in love with the Countess Olivia, sends Viola to woo on his behalf. What could possibly go wrong? Olivia falls in love with the cross-dressed page while Viola falls deep and fast for Orsino. Meanwhile, mischievous servants play painful pranks at each other’s expense. Heady chaos ensues as griefs, loves and deep human confusions collide, but fear not! Sweet resolution wins the day as friends, twins and lovers are reunited.

Our Twelfth Night - Shakespeare's Globe 2017 Review

Shakespeare plays have a habit of coming in multiples in London: for instance, I've already seen four versions of Julius Caesar in the last six months alone, and there are two more on the immediate horizon in Bristol and at London's new Bridge Theatre imminently.
