The grungily detailed set, by J. Michael Griggs, has the look of a place that’s been lived in, hard, for quite a while.

Where they meet is in the lakeside cabin (J. Michael Griggs designed it well) .... Incidentally, that drop-in is preceded by a coup de theatre that could be the comedy-drama's most exciting occurrence. It won't be described, other than to say anyone who's dozed off during the many Veronica-Logan conversations will be jolted from their reverie when the whatever-is-not-being -described takes place.

The action takes place over a roughly one-year span in a rustic lakeside cabin, somewhere in the Northeast not too far from New York. Designer J. Michael Griggs’ set is filled with ramshackle detail. The hunting and fishing trophies suggest a happier history than that indicated by the cabin’s rundown present state. There’s an invigorating visual jolt before the final scene, when a clever staging trick shows how drastically things have deteriorated for Hogan in the six months since Veronica’s stay at the cabin.

In any case, the last ten minutes spark (some of them provided by a clever trick of J. Michael Griggs’s set design).

Set designer J. Michael Griggs delivers a coup de teatre in the handling of props that, in a truly shocking way, reveals just how deep a hole this man has dug for himself out in the woods. It's stunning theater, and the audience jumps.
