WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Banksy was in LA for the Oscars when he sprayed 'THIS LOOKS A BIT LIKE AN ELEPHANT' on an old water tank. The tank was residence for a local legend, Tachowa Covington, who over seven years had furnished it with carpets, a stove - even CCTV. As news spread of Banksy's latest work, a consortium of art dealers soon appeared to repossess the water tank. Suddenly, Tachowa was homeless again...

The play will be followed by a screening of Something From Nothing, documentary maker Hal Samples' short film about Tachowa, edited from material gathered over 7 years. Running time: 1hr 50mins (inc. documentary screening). Age recommendation 12+ Seating will be reserved for this show.
