The set for this performance appeared fairly simple, it consisted of two side walls, an upstage wall with a door and a hatch in it and a platform and set of treads behind to allow the performer to open and look through the hatch.

There were also 2 walls - an upstage and a downstage - that were flown and two t-sections which were each flown on two different counterweight bars. Onstage there was a “fish van” which was wheeled on and off
