In Twelfth Night Nordland Theatre shows a comedy about love at many levels, where everybody is in love with everybody; men in women, women in men, women in women, and some are in love with themselves.

The Shakespeare comedy about love's ways and detours can be read with a tragicomic message; that we are all fools in love and that we probably live well with being so. Twelfth Night has the subtitle What you will and was supposedly written in 1601 or 1602.
