Viola disguises herself as the young man Cesario. She falls in love with her best buddy, Duke Orsino, who loves Olivia. Olivia loves Cesario, who is really Viola. Malvolio loves Olivia and is tricked (by Toby, Maria, and friends) into thinking that she loves him back. He plots to steal the fair Olivia away from Orsino.
Sebastian, Olivia’s lost twin brother, shows up and Olivia, believing him to be Cesario, becomes engaged to him. Orsino and Malvolio both vie for Olivia’s love, neither of them knowing that Olivia is engaged to Sebastian. Viola vies for the Duke’s love but is thwarted by the fact that he thinks she is a he.
The truth is exposed. Sebastian and Olivia get hitched. The Duke and Viola get hitched. Toby and Maria get hitched. Malvolio is left bitter.
