“We've got 99% the same genes as any other person. We've got 90% the same as a chimpanzee. We've got 30% the same as a lettuce. Does that cheer you up at all?"

The set allows for a lot of play and interaction to open up the movement of the scenes, despite just being set in one place.

Each cupboard reveals a random collection of objects behind, echoing the sinister nature of the play by enhancing the themes of scientific cloning and individuality through the use of set and lighting.
