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, it chronicles one man’s ongoing story of living all
but his first three months of life in the United States as an
undocumented American. 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.
