I don’t really think it’s necessary to praise William Shakespeare; moons on the planet Uranus are named after his characters and his work continues to amaze me. Twelfth Night was a comedy, taking place in the Elizabethan era and dealing with both royalty, music, jokes and loads of fun! It follows the story of Viola and her twin brother Sebastian who are victims of a shipwreck and are separated. Viola, who presumes her brother has perished in the disaster, seeks the help of the Captain when they arrive in Illyria. He tells her of the Duke Orsino and his maddening love for the Lady Olivia, and Viola decides to disguise herself as a young boy named Cesario to enter the duke’s service. However, her deception arouses comical issues when Olivia falls in love with her, Viola falls for Cesario and Orsino just doesn’t know his feelings. When Sebastian returns, things fall into an even bigger turmoil as he is mistaken for Viola… this was truly a pleasurable read and the troupe of Feste, Toby, Andrew, Maria and Malvolio added a true punch to the story! Rating 4/5
