The play is set in two staterooms and the lounge car of the luxurious 20th Century Limited, also known as the "millionaires' line." 20th Century is a drawing room comedy/farce set on a train; the comedy is derived from, and often at the expense of, the close relationships of the characters, especially the relationship between Lily Garland and Oscar Jaffe. Much of the action moves quickly between the staterooms and the lounge car. Depending on interpretation, there is also the possibility of having the train platform as a fourth setting. Because the script is very fast paced, the set needed to allow rapid scene changes so as not to interrupt the flow of the play.
