Let’s Talk About WET: A DACA-mented Journey

Did you learn something new?
What is a truth that you heard?
What are organizations or movements organizing around immigrant rights and immigration reform that you want other people to know about?
Alex Alpharaoh gives us a lot to think about through this story of navigating constantly shifting policy and rhetoric around immigration. Some of us see ourselves represented in his story while others are receiving information and insight we’ve never heard before.
Our blog is full of great content if you’d like to read more. You can find it all here!
A “wonderful show.”
“Alex’s performance was so incredibly powerful — charged with honesty, humanity, urgency, resilience, and hope…Thank you for bringing voices like Alex’s to our city. Just like with The Peculiar Patriot, which I saw recently as well, I feel more connected to my fellow Americans when I can more viscerally understand their pain and struggle…Thank you again for making art like this available to Boston audiences.”
“Phenomenal–I will be recommending it to everyone I know!”
“This was one of the most powerful performances I’ve EVER seen. Alex physically and emotionally embodies a 10 year old, a worried mom, a customs officer, an abuelo and other characters with completely believable ease. He had me hugging my knees riveted to my seat, heart pounding in empathy and anticipation. Go see this. Go see this. Go see this!”
