“Sam and Dede” or “My Dinner with Andre the Giant” to be read at Theatre for the New City

My play “Sam and Dede” or “My Dinner with Andre the Giant” will be given a staged reading at Theatre for the New City, next Monday July 6th at 7 pm. (155 1st Avenue, between East 9th and East 10th Streets)

This is your chance to see Bob Jaffe play Samuel Beckett and me play Andre. (Yes, I’m in the process of gaining 400 pounds…just watch me). Hope to see you there.

Synopsis:

(True story) –12-year old Andre the Giant, already well over 6 feet tall and 240 pounds, didn’t fit on the school bus. Andre’s neighbor, feelings sorry for the boy, offered to drive him to school in his truck. The neighbor was Samuel Beckett.

Out of that bit of trivia comes “Sam and Dede, or My Dinner with Andre the Giant,” imagining a number of scenes between a giant who cannot hide, and a writer obsessed with silence.

Best, G
