Basically, a girl gets shipwrecked far from home and thinks she has just seen her brother die, so she gallivants as a boy in the duke's court. There's a lot of partying, a lot of drinking, a lot of singing, a lot of crude and bawdy jokes/sexual innuendo, and fun times all around (if you're not Malvolio, which by the way is pretty sad). Even being in unrequited love is a fun time, as we see from Duke Orsino!
(Saw a production of this at Bard on the Beach this summer, which I thought was very entertaining and exactly as light-hearted as it should be. Also, Jonathon Young was the best Feste anyone could ever hope for.
Plus, reading this for my late Shakespeare course at uni.)
