– William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night
Twelfth Night is a comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written around 1601–02 as a Twelfth Night’s entertainment for the close of the Christmas season. The play expanded on the musical interludes and riotous disorder expected of the occasion, with plot elements drawn from the short story “Of Apollonius and Silla” by Barnabe Rich, based on a story by Matteo Bandello. This romantic Comedy deals and relates to real life events, as people in life hides there identities so that others won’t know there true inner self. For example, Viola played a character in the name of Cesario. She had true feelings for one Orsino but couldn’t express her feelings because of her disguise being a man. Her disguise instead was to help Olivia hook up with the man that loves her Orsino. In Act 5 when Viola confines her love to Orsino and the two characters married each other.
