5 TO SEE THIS WEEK.

BANKSY: THE ROOM IN THE ELEPHANT Where? Sherman Cymru, Cardiff When? May 12 to 14 What's it all about? In 2011, Banksy sprayed "this looks a bit like an elephant" on a disused water tank in LA. The tank was residence for a local legend, Tachowa Covington, who had furnished it with carpets, a stove - even CCTV. The tank instantly became a work of art and was taken away to be sold. Suddenly, Tachowa was homeless again. Starring Gary Beadle, this play is a story about creating something from nothing and then having it taken away, in the name of art. Tickets?
