The Rorsky Plays
An evening of one-act plays by Rory Jobst
Beckett, Andre the Giant and the Crickets
While living in rural France, Irish Nobel-winning playwright Samuel Beckett drove his friend’s son, Andre Rousimoff, to school, because the 12-year-old boy was too big to fit in the local school bus. This boy would grow up to become the iconic professional wrestler, Andre the Giant. Inspired by a true story, this one-act imagines one particular drive to school, chock full of Beckett’s existential absurdities and Andre’s zest for life. This a remount of a successful production at this year’s Rhinoceros Theatre Festival.
