Twelve by Shakespeare in 2012 has finished Twelfth Night. We wrapped up the comedies with this gender-bending mistaken-identity farce. Olivia's masquerade as a boy (which I'm still not sure I see the point of) sets the whole thing in motion. More than one character mistakenly falls in love with someone of the same sex, which provided much fodder for did-Shakespeare-really-intend-to-suggest-that discussions. And Malvolio's humiliation seemed uncalled-for to most of us! In May we start the histories with Julius Caesar.
