The Accidental Hero

WWII American officer, Matt Konop, refused to talk about his service in the war. Yet when he died his basement yielded a treasure trove of typewritten accounts, photos, and rare film footage. The Accidental Hero is a multi-media one-man show about this brave serviceman who miraculously liberates the Czech villages of his grandparents. It's a remarkably true story of a Wisconsin hero, written and performed by grandson, Patrick Dewane. Dewane brings this archival material to glowing life as an enthralling, humorous, and heartwarming tale of miraculous escapes and astonishing coincidences. This touching show of jaw-dropping coincidences, plot twists, and triumph, runs from belly laughs to tears as Dewane takes on a dozen different roles, powerfully recounting his grandfather's journey from Omaha Beach, the Battle of the Bulge, and the end of WWII.
