WET: A DACAmented Journey
In America, it should not be impossible to dream.
WET: A DACAmented Journey is a true story of what it means to be an American in every sense of the word except one: on paper. Written and performed by Alex Alpharaoh—an award-winning actor, director, spoken word artist and teaching artist—who knows firsthand the emotional and psychological hardship of this unending process; he risks his own freedom to share his story in this nationwide tour. WET rockets between hilarity and heartbreak to capture one man’s relentless journey toward becoming a documented citizen.
“This is theater at its most evocative. Alpharoah is the embodiment of the immigration debate. His trials and fear are delivered right into our space."
- Jared Bowen, WGBH
