Subject:     Maria in Twelfth Night, Act 5

 

Has anyone ever come up with a convincing explanation as to why Maria is not present in Act 5 of Twelfth Night? Her absence is not dramatically convincing, and it can’t be for any weird doubling reason, e.g. with Sebastian (although superficially plausible, that would have resulted in at least two impossible exits/entries.)
