SCENES


PROLOGUE

Residence of the Minister


FIRST ACT

Apartment of Dr. Schiller in Soho Square


SECOND ACT

Residence of the Minister


THIRD ACT

Apartment of Dr. Schiller in Soho Square


FOURTH ACT

Residence of the Minister

A period of one month is supposed to pass between the Prologue and Act I, and of two months between Acts II and III. The action of the rest of the play is continuous. Therefore in performance it is desirable that Acts I and II and Acts III and IV should be played without intervals.

To avoid offence the time of the play is assumed to be in the future.
