In the world of odd couples, you can't get much odder than André the Giant and Samuel Beckett. And yet, these two actually did cross paths. The new play Sam and Dede, or My Dinner with André the Giant brings this unlikely story to life with a comic absurdity with which Beckett himself might have written it. Before he was a pro wrestling star, before his scene-stealing role in The Princess Bride, André Roussimoff was just a kid with gigantism. By 12 years old he was too big to fit on the school bus, so his neighbor, who happened to be Nobel Prize-winning writer Samuel Beckett, offered to drive André to school. This new comedy from San Francisco's Custom Made Theatre Co. imagines what a friendship might have been like between a young man who cannot hide and a writer obsessed with silence.
