The Accidental Hero

The Accidental Hero

Saturday, April 13, 7 p.m.

The Accidental Hero is a jaw-dropping true story about Czech freedom at the end of World War II. U.S. Army Colonel Matt Konop, as a unit commander, liberated the remote border villages his grandparents had left for America decades earlier. When he was able to use the Czech he grew up speaking on a Wisconsin farm, the Czech townspeople hailed him as a hero. “We are liberated by one of our own!” The experience altered Konop’s sense of identity, freeing him from an ignorance of his Czech heritage. 

His grandson, Patrick Dewane, tells this amazing story through a multi-media one-man show that has toured over a hundred venues across the United States and has earned awards in the Czech Republic.

Before the show, Pavel Jany, Czech-born Minnesota jazz musician, performs as the crowd arrives. After the performance, award-winning Minnesota writer Patricia Hampl interviews Dewane about the show, his upcoming annual tour in the Czech Republic, and takes questions from the audience. Wine, beer, and zelnicky (sauerkraut crackers) available to purchase.

Patrick Dewane is donating his performance. All ticket sales go to support the Legacy Fund of Czech and Slovak Sokol Minnesota. $15 general admission; $20 reserved seats (limited to 50). 

Also supporting this event are Czech and Slovak Cultural Center of Minnesota, Czech Heritage Club, and the Honorary Czech Consulate /Minneapolis.
