    In the comedy Twelfth Night, disguise and mistaken identity create a complicated love triangle. The duke Orsino is in love with Lady Olivia. Meanwhile, Viola ends up shipwrecked and separated from her brother Sebastian. She dresses as a boy and becomes the page of Orsino, with whom she falls in love. Olivia falls in love with Viola in her disguise. Although everything works out in the end, with Viola marrying Orsino and Olivia marrying Sebastian, love makes the characters miserable through much of the play.
