Set designer James Hunting uses ladders that reach up to the ceiling – a unique and interesting use of staging throughout the play. The cast aptly uses the ladders as expressionistic furniture devices. The lighting by Mike Riggs successfully reflects the dark tone of the piece, getting darker during Helen's descent to murder and freedom from her oppressive life. Costume designer Kay Lee uses minimalist, utilitarian, almost military like outfits to relate the loss of individualism in a machine-like society.
