GHOST RIVER THEATRE’S

GIANT

CREATED BY DAVID VAN BELLE AND ERIC ROSE

THE GRAND

MARCH 12 – 24, 2019

 

GIANT is the amazing story of professional wrestler André the Giant, one of the most recognizable and beloved public figures ever. With a cast of five women, GIANT makes full use of the inherent theatricality of professional wrestling, bringing an audience ringside while they simultaneously discover the details of André’s giant-sized life. 

From the minds behind The Highest Step in the World, Tomorrow’s Child and The Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst. GIANT is designed to engage both wrestling aficionados and those who only knew André as the beloved giant Fezzik in Rob Reiner’s classic film, The Princess Bride.
