About this show

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, the show chronicles his ongoing struggles and fight to remain in the only home he has ever known, the United States. Wet captures one man's relentless journey toward becoming a documented citizen. Wet captures the precarious, red-tape-ravaged life that's aptly nicknamed the "DREAMer" experience while trying to realize their own American dream. Alpharaoh, a social worker who knows firsthand the mental, emotional and psychological hardship of this unending process, risks his own freedom to share his story in this nationwide tour. The production — which rockets between hilarity and heartbreak — will instantly humanize the headlines and take audiences inside the realities of striving for a better life under the extreme conditions of living life as a political football.
