The music and the set keep the story comical and light, despite the recurring themes of suicide, loneliness, deception, and heartbreak. Doug Johnson's set design looks like an abstract expressionist's psychedelic gumdrop fairyland. The storybook-style backdrop is composed of multiple pages stained and spray-painted to look like a palm grove, a temple, and other colorful, ambiguous dreamscapes and between scenes, the actors flip the pages by pulling a ribbon across the stage. Like a children's pop-up book, segments of the pages remain visible through multiple scenes, peeking through cutouts shaped like doorways, hands, and stars. In the second act, the actors pull the large, silky pages of the backdrop to the center of the space to engulf the characters within a somewhat yonic-looking portal.
