Viola: What country friends is this?
Captain: This is Illyria, Lady.
Viola: And what should I do in Illyria?
Masquerade as a boy page, fall in love with a Duke, court the lady he loves in his stead, try to disengage the amorous advances of the beloved Duke's beloved lady, fight a duel with a besotted sot, confuse a mystified sea captain, and hope a shipwrecked brother has survived... Lovers and pranksters, mistaken identities (and genders), disguised ladies who have given up on men, and a cross-gartered, moonstruck Puritan lacking a sense of humor populate a charmed tale of misdirected love and mischief. "If music be the food of love, play on!"
