The Accidental Hero



Like many of his generation, Matt Konop didn’t talk about his experiences during World War II.

Twenty years after his passing, Konop’s grandson, Patrick Dewane, found a box in the basement full of his grandfather’s typewritten accounts of World War II and rare film footage – as well as a startling discovery.

Not only had Matt Konop served in the war, but, in an implausible coincidence, he’d also been involved in one of the war’s most pivotal moments.

Portraying more than a dozen characters, and using rare film footage, Dewane brings to life the story of a regular Midwestern farm boy and a forgotten piece of history.

You’ll like this show if you like history, genealogy or storytelling. Stories that are compelling. This show is not for you if you prefer spectacle-filled theater productions.
