Banksy: The Room in the ElephantGary Beadle - best known as Eastenders' Paul Trueman, who is also making a name for himself as a stage actor starring in plays like the Royal Court's Sucker Punch - gives "a colourful and compelling performance" (The Stage) in Tom Wainwright's Banksy: The Room in the Elephant. The clever script, based on a true story, reveals what happened when Banksy sprayed 'This Looks a bit like an elephant' on an old water tank in LA. The home of a local legend, Tachowa Covington, the water tank soon becomes lucrative property as a consortium of art dealers appear to repossess the 'art work'.
