‘Beckett’s Dinner with Andre the Giant’ by Gino DiIorio read at Clark on April 30

“Beckett’s Dinner with Andre the Giant,” a new play by Professor Gino DiIorio, will be read at Clark on Wednesday, April 30 at 7 p.m. in the Little Center Theatre.

This play is based on the unusual relationship between the Nobel Prize winning playwright Samuel Beckett and the Pro Wrestler often called  ”the eighth wonder of the world.” The two met when Andre was 12 years old but already showing the extraordinary size that would come to characterize his life.  The say the least, the two made an unlikely pair.

The reading features veteran Worcester actor Bill Segalis and will run about 90 minutes.

Posted by Tina Zlody | Posted in Campus News & Events | Posted on 24-04-2014

The Cage and Cardew Society was founded by Matthew Malsky, composer and Clark University music professor and Michael Thibodeau, singer/songwriter and Worcester North High School music teacher. The society has been formed to bring together lovers of classic experimental and avant–garde music for the purpose of keeping the music alive through performance. This series of performances is an extension of the Living Room Concert, named for the Cage piece. It was an annual event that Malsky and Thibodeau began at Clark University, which presented new student compositions alongside contemporary classics.  Stay tuned, this will be rescheduled next semester!
