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!

Reviews

“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
“Combines autobiography, political mission and hip-hop-inflected spoken word to put the audience in Alpharaoh’s shoes — and you feel every springy step and chafed toe.”
“A riveting and entirely engrossing 90 minutes that you will not soon forget…With all the media spin going on about immigration from both sides, it’s imperative for us to step back and add a human face to this struggle. There is no one better to provide that context than Mr. Alpharaoh.” – EDGE Boston

Audience Reactions

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!”

“Loved every minute of my experience at the show with my students! Incredible performance!”

  1. So, first of all I would like to say that I really enjoyed watched that scene and I truly can imagine what he has been through in his life. I put myself in his shoes trying to feel what he had felt during a difficult time like that.
    And also I would like to say that he’s brave in sharing his true story about this crucial problem that is immigration and for performing it.
    Was awesome !!!

    Thanks for the opportunity ,
