Co-produced with SMU Meadows School of the Arts’ Ignite/Arts Dallas and Producing Sponsor Latino Center for Leadership Development, Cara Mía Theatre Co. is proud to present WET: A DACAmented Journey as the company’s first national tour.
 
The Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle hailed this acclaimed solo show, written and performed by Alex Alpharaoh, as the Best Solo Performance of 2018. Co-commissioned by Cara Mía Theatre, Ignite/Arts Dallas and ArtsEmerson, Cara Mía Theatre Co. will embark on its first national tour with WET: A DACAmented Journey visiting Dallas, Austin, Chicago, Denton, Boston, and West Hartford, CT.
 
“I was asked recently, why do this project now, doesn't this put you at risk? To which I thought about, and stayed up the whole night wrestling with” says writer and performer Alex Alpharoah. “I've lived my entire life in the shadows, where it was cold, lonely, and dark. I never knew that there were people like me. If I would have known sooner that there were people in situations similar to mine, I would have felt a sense of comfort in knowing that I was not alone. I speak for those who cannot. Who are too afraid, who have a language barrier, who are tired, and feel defeated, like I tend to feel on my worst days. I speak because at any day, they can end DACA and I can be right back to square zero, but before that happens, I'm going to make sure you hear me.”
 
"Alex's personal story is full of wit, courage, strength and tremendous love," says Executive Artistic Director David Lozano. "WET reveals how the current turmoil in the immigration system threatens to snatch extraordinary individuals like Alex away from the country they have always called home. WET is a roller coaster ride that entertains with humor and pure stage presence but brings the audience to the undeniable truth that DACAmented Americans living in the US today need our help now more than ever."


WET: A DACAmented Journey is the story of what it means to be an American in every sense of the word except one: on paper. Based on a true story, WET chronicles one DACA recipient’s ongoing battle of living all but his first three months of life in the United States as an undocumented citizen. Written and performed by Alex Alpharaoh from Los Angeles, WET vividly captures the precarious, red-tape-ravaged life of one “DREAMer”.
