really liked it
bookshelves: reread
Read in February, 1994

A tale of mistaken identity, loss, and rediscovery - themes Shakespeare often touched in his plays.

Two siblings are separated in a shipwreck and spend the play trying to survive, entangling their lives with a wounded pair of nobles.

The supporting characters - Aguecheek and Belch - are hilarious. The Seattle Rep production of Twelfe Night introduced several interesting interprations, notably the hinted romance between the siblings and the fascinating race relations introduced by casting an African-American as Malvolio.
