Jordan Berman, mid 20’s, average build, loves cats. Looking for my soul-mate here, but I’m finding that’s easier said than done. So until I meet Mr. Right, I’m currently warding off lonely nights with my trio of closest girlfriends. But our singles’ nights are turning into bachelorette parties, and I’m quickly learning a painful lesson: the only thing harder than finding love is supporting the loved ones around you when they do.

Twelfth Night, or What You Will is a romantic comedy by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written around 1601–1602 as a Twelfth Night's entertainment for the close of the Christmas season. Twelfth Night is a fast-paced romantic comedy with several interwoven plots of romance, mistaken identities and practical jokes. Separated from her twin brother Sebastian in a shipwreck, Viola disguises herself as a boy, calls herself Cesario, and becomes a servant to the Duke Orsino. He sends her to woo the Countess Olivia on his behalf, but the Countess falls in love with Viola as Cesario. Meanwhile Olivia’s uncle, Sir Toby Belch, gets drunk with his friend Sir Andrew Aguecheek and they play a trick on the uptight Malvolio, Olivia’s steward, who is secretly in love with her. Eventually Viola’s twin Sebastian turns up and causes even more confusion, chaos and hijinks in this lighthearted comedy.
