"Nonsense parts the waves for the demon class." An abstract play about a group of people who live in a cooler under a mysterious but palpable oppressive force. Their language has been warped and the rules of their society have been confused, and they struggle to reconcile their desires and impulses with the chilling environment they find themselves in. The play operates in an almost dream-like state as the characters experiment with language, will, and the nature of oppression - both external and self-imposed.
