Hi Andy,

I would start with the heat and putty knife.
If this doesn't go well, you may want to check construction adhesive tubes for common solvents.
Try getting solvent in between the drywall and top of the plastic wall.
Don't use heat and solvents at the same time!
Wear proper splash protection and the proper vapor filter.

Good health, Weogo
