A Custom Made Theatre Co. production.

SYNOPSIS: It's a totally 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 repayment of 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. Dilorio fashions a world as absurd as a Beckett play itself.
