The Room in the Elephant

This show is a co-production with The Tobacco Factory, Bristol 

Last year in Los Angeles the graffiti artist Banksy scrawled “THIS LOOKS A BIT LIKE AN ELEPHANT” on a worthless water tank and turned it into a priceless work of art. Those in the know rose in unison to salute the artist’s latest comment on homelessness – the metaphorical “elephant” in the room.  An inevitable land grab subsequently followed and the water tank was taken away.

But someone had been living there. For seventeen years. And in a cruelly ironic twist of fate this man was now homeless. Because of Banksy. Or so the story goes.

Featuring Gary Beadle.

    I was just entranced for the whole hour. An ingenious and moving script, and an acting tour de force. Big thanks to all involved.
