WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It's a totally true story: 12-year old Andre the Giant, already over six feet tall and 240 pounds, didn't fit on the school bus. Andre's neighbor, as repayment for a favor, offered to drive Andre to school in his truck. The neighbor was Samuel Beckett. Sam & Dede, or My Dinner With Andre the Giant, imagines a series of scenes between a giant — a man who cannot hide — and a writer obsessed with silence. Writer Gino Dilorio has fashioned a world as absurd as a Beckett play itself.
