The Accidental Hero is a multi-media one-man show about a WWII American officer who miraculously liberates the Czech villages of his grandparents. It’s a true story written and performed by his grandson, Patrick Dewane. This touching show runs from belly laughs to tears. Dewane takes on a dozen different roles as he powerfully recounts his grandfather’s journey from Omaha Beach, the Battle of the Bulge, and the end of WWII. In the last week of the war, the story turns away from a soldier’s survival tale to something from mythology. He discovers his lost identity, embraced by the tribe he never knew. As he freed the Czechs, they liberated him.

At Christmas is a unique blend of family-fueled comedy and drama brilliantly written and performed by three alumni of Dudley Riggs Brave New Workshop, as well as a live, 6-piece band featuring one of the Twin Cities’ favorite front men, Mick Sterling, and A Brave New Workshop’s musical director, Peter Guertin. The presentation of At Christmas is wonderfully simple and minimal. What drives At Christmas are the stories and the music that will ring true with family members of all ages. The 90 minute show is a reflection of what the holidays are—funny, poignant, and heartwarmingly tender.
