The Accidental Hero One-Man Play Feb. 22-24

The Accidental Hero
The Accidental Hero

The Accidental Hero is an astonishing, 90-minute, one-man play about history, the reality of war and the mystery of heroes.

Patrick Dewane tells the story of his grandfather, a man whose seemingly goofy CB radio-handle during the 1970s–”The Accidental Hero”–was really a clue to his incredible story as a WWII Czech-American soldier fighting in the forests of his family’s ancient homeland.

Dewane’s grandfather, Matt Konop, rarely talked about the war, but years after his death Dewane was handed a pile of typewritten pages that a family member had discovered in a box in a basement.
