        Twelfth Night Act 1 Sc 2

        In this video from Penn State's School of Theatre production of Twelfth Night, Viola and a shipwrecked crew pull themselves out of the sea onto the shore of Illyria. The captain tries to convince her there is a chance her brother survived, but Viola has little hope. The captain, a native of these lands, explains that Duke Orsino rules Illyria. Viola knows of him and recalls he's a bachelor. The captain replies that though unmarried, he is unsuccessfully courting Lady Olivia who is mourning her dead brother. Viola decides to disguise herself as a man and gain a position in Orsino’s household.
