Intended to be staged as a performance showcase piece, the set for this production is an abstraction of the saloon of a cruiser, of which the play is set in. White blocks of various dimensions were fitted together to form a silhouette of the saloon, and further dressed with white furniture pieces. The whiteness of the entire set against a black box background serves as a plain canvas for the performers to perform in; while the set provides some visual sense of the locality of the play, it is still subtle enough to allow the audience to focus entirely on the performers
