"Twelfth Night" by William Shakespeare is a timeless comedy that brings together love, mistaken identities, and mischievous schemes in a world of enchantment and revelry. Set in the kingdom of Illyria, this delightful play takes audiences on a whirlwind of laughter, romance, and unexpected twists.

Shipwrecked and separated from her twin brother, Viola disguises herself as a man named Cesario and enters the service of Duke Orsino. As the Duke sends Cesario to woo the Countess Olivia on his behalf, a series of hilarious misunderstandings and romantic entanglements ensue. Viola finds herself falling in love with the Duke, while Olivia falls for Cesario, not realizing that he is actually a woman in disguise.
