Reading of “Sam and Dede” or “My Dinner with Andre the Giant”

“Sam and Dede, or My Dinner with Andre the Giant”

Written by Gino DiIorio. Directed by Leah S. Abrams.

With David Fierro * and Bob Jaffe *

* indicates member of Actors’ Equity Association

Thursday, January 24, 2013; 7:00 p.m. at the cell
338 West 23rd Street (between 8th & 9th)AndretheGiant

True story: 12-year old Andre the Giant, already over 6 feet tall and 240 pounds, didn’t fit on the school bus. Andre’s neighbor, as a kind gesture of returning a favor, 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 three scenes between a giant – a man who cannot hide, and a writer obsessed with silence.

Hope you can make it!
