"Ruhl allows that you could do the play with 'a table and two chairs.' That's not the Lyric way. Shelley Barish sets this production in a kind of shared attic of houses and memories. There's a stack of books stretching from floor to ceiling, as if it were holding up the house. The dustily bric-a-brac includes tennis racket, hurricane amps, a candlestick, a victrola, and an overturned Radio Trail wagon. A spiral iron staircase leads to a second playing level. It's all imagination, and imaginatively detailed."

"The set that director Larry Coen and set designer Shelley Barish have devised isn't exactly simple, but its a hoot. The stage floor conjures a board game with its snaking path; on the back wall are more paths, with the four locales depicted, and a white door with a question mark on it (as 'What's behind door no.1')."
