Imagine you have no home.
In Dream Acts, a fictional play about DREAM-eligible youth, five undocumented teens from Nigeria, Mexico, The Ukraine, Korea, and Jordan face the extraordinary challenge of living ordinary lives under the radar.
Each story is moving and urgent; some are funny, others are tragic, and through their experiences, we learn about the DREAM Act and the secret lives led by undocumented youth.
