"The Accidental Hero" is a multi-media one-man show about a WWII American officer who liberates the Czech villages of his grandparents. It's a true story written and performed by his grandson, Patrick Dewane.
Dewane's grandfather, Matt Konop, refused to talk about his service in the war. When he died, his basement yielded a treasure trove of typewritten accounts, photos and rare film footage. 
Dewane brings this archival material to life as a tale of miraculous escapes and astonishing coincidences. He takes on a dozen different roles as he recounts his grandfather's journey from Omaha Beach, the Battle of the Bulge, and the end of WWII.
