A Chinese-boxes version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic, that playfully refracts the oft-told story of the wide-eyed boy, the pirate quest, Long John Silver, through such differing conventions as those of the TV serial, the role playing game, or psychoanalysis. Disruptive and disjunctive rather than Disneyesque.
