Twelfth Night in Performance: The RSC and Beyond. Jonson seems to have fallen out with Shakespeare's acting company early in the new century.
Twelfth Night in Performance: The RSC and Beyond. Four Centuries of Twelfth Night: An Overview. William and Ann Shakespeare's twins, Judith and Hamnet (alternatively spelled Hamlet), were born in February 1585. Their father's fascination with the dramatic possibilities of double selves is apparent from his early Comedy of Errors, where he adapted a classical story about separated male twins and mistaken identity, but complicated it by giving the brothers servants who are also identical twins.
O, fellow, come, the song we had last night
I sent thee sixpence for thy leman: hadst it? Clown. O, fellow, come, the song we had last night. Mark it, Cesario, it is old and plain; The spinsters and the knitters in the sun And the free maids that weave their thread with bones Do use to chant it: it is silly sooth, And dallies with the innocence of love, Like the old age. Clown.

O' the twelfth day of DecemberMARIA. For the love o' God, peace! Enter MALVOLIO. Sweet Sir Toby, be patient for to-night; since the youth of the Count's was to-day with my lady, she is much out of quiet. For Monsieur Malvolio, let me alone with him; if I do not gull him into a nayword, and make him a common recreation, do not think I have wit enough to lie straight in my bed. I know I can do it.

The name likely comes from a performance of the play twelve days after Christmas, on the Feast of the Epiphany, possibly at Whitehall Palace in 1602. The mood of Twelfth Night certainly suits the occasion. The alternative title, What You Will, possibly was Shakespeare's own name for the play (note the similarity to As You Like It), which might have been changed to distinguish it from John Marston's play, also called What You Will, written in 1601.
