There’s no strong language, though in fact, barely any language at all. However, upholding Reckless Sleepers' tradition of innovative use of space, there is, in a sense, a surfeit of set 'For Schromnger’s Box we've created Our own little stage that’s a bit like a Russian Doll, With a big proscenium, then a smaller one, then decreasing sizes of little proscenium arches in it '
