A comedy set in a city, with his glorious language.
Two twins, a woman named Viola and a man named Sebastian, are shipwrecked; both believe the other drowned.

Meanwhile, Olivia's drunken uncle, her chambermaid, her fool, and her uncle's friend start off various mischief.
Complications ensue. Sebastian's arrival makes them all collide, until it also resolves them all.
