[R] How to remove box in Venn plots (Vennerable package, uses grid) - similar to bty="n" in standard plots

I'm using the package Vennerable to make Venn diagrams, but it always makes a box around the diagram.

Using standard R plots I could eliminate that by indicating


but it seems Vennerable uses the Grid package to generate its plots and I'm not really familiar enough with Grid. I was looking at the documentation but I can't seem to find a way to achieve that. I'd even be happy drawing a white rectangle with wide lines to overplot the box, but there must be a way to not draw the box in the first place.

Anybody knows how?
