The amount of "Stretch" tension required using BOC or even Spandex is too great to allow the use of only Staples into 'only" 1/2" Drywall, and even if you could hit underlying wood framing all around, any 3/4" to 1" long Staple would almost assuredly Dimple either Fabric enough to transmit a wrinkle of Fold across the surface.
With Spandex, it would seem 'possible" to attach the outside edges to thin, wooden slats that could then be pulled out and attached to long, very heavy duty Velco strips, as even at a "Tight stretch" the tension would be far less that that required of BOC material.
