I suspect that the form of the play is always a variation of the One, the Two, and the Three, psychically that is. To wit; there have been play-structures corresponding slightly ahead in time to any given century, and if I knew enough about the drama I could explain Act One, Act Two, and Act Three as containing respectively.
|One||Three||Two||The Little Foxes?|
|Two||One||Three||End as a Man?|
|Two||Three||One||All My Sons—Death of a Salesman.|
|Three||One||Two||The Gate of Hell.|
|Three||Two||One||The Cocktail Party.|
