Sam and Dede, or My Dinner with Andre the Giant
900 Massachusetts Ave. NW Washington
One of the unlikeliest of friendships began when an aspiring writer, an Irish expatriate in France, gave a young man (whose remarkable size made him the object of derision) rides to school each day, discussing playwriting, pro wrestling, and where their lives would lead them. Based on the real-life relationship between that giant of 20th Century literature, Samuel Beckett, and Andre the Giant, known to fans as a professional wrestler and the actor from The Princess Bride! An area premiere.
