At the end of each scene, a choice is made and the play divides into its various permutations from this, leading to a basic structure of one prologue; 2 first scenes; 4 second scenes; 8 third scenes and 16 fourth scenes. Although there are 16 different permutations, the play is split into eight distinct plays, each of which has an alternate ending.
