DREAMers: An (Un)Documentary Play

Developed with The Civilians Education Department in partnership with Make The Road New York

Written and directed by Adam Odsess-Rubin

DREAMers explores freedom, oppression, and identity as undocumented youth respond to the announcement of President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.  Created from interviews conducted in 2012 with six young Dreamers in New York City, the play cuts through the news headlines to celebrate immigrants' real stories of pain and hope using the power of theater.
