Twelfth Night synopsis

Separated from her twin brother by a shipwreck off the coast of Illyria, Viola (Gillian Jones) disguises herself as a male page, Cesario. Lovestruck Duke Orsino (Ivar Kants) uses Cesario as a go-between to woo the haughty Countess Olivia (Jacqy Phillips), who falls for the handsome page, while Olivia herself grows to love the duke. Meanwhile, Olivia's steward, Malvolio (Peter Cummins), falls victim to practical jokes perpetrated by Toby Belch (John Wood) and Andrew Aguecheek (Geoffrey Rush).
