The 12th Night is about young adult twins, a boy and a girl, who are separated when their ship is torn apart during a storm at sea. Each thinks the other has drowned, but each is rescued. The young girl, Viola, is taken ashore in Illyria, where she disguises herself as a man and serves in the court of Duke Orsino. The fun begins when a rich heiress, Olivia, falls in love with Cesario (Viola in disguise as a man.) To complicate things further, Viola's brother, Sebastian, then arrives in town, and the two are mistaken for each other with hilarious results.

Also in the story is Sir Toby Belch, uncle to the heiress, who along with his sidekicks, Sir Andrew Aguecheek and Fabian, play practical jokes on several other characters. Sir Toby and Sir Andrew spend a great deal of time "drinking healths" to Olivia, and therefore are usually drunk from mid-afternoon until well into the morning. Malvolio, Olivia's puritanical servant, tries to reform Sir Toby, but to no avail.

In the end, the twins are reunited, and each finds true love. Sir Toby also finds true love with Maria, Lady Olivia's handmaid, and everyone celebrates the end of a very strange yet wonderful day.
