Dream Act Union
Imagine that you don’t have a country. It doesn’t matter if you believe you’re American, because no one else believes you—not potential employers, not banks that issue student loans, not the government. There is no way to become legally American. You don’t exist. Worse, you are hunted for deportation. You love this country, but the country does not love you back.
Dream Acts was written collectively by Mia Chung, Jessica Litwak, Chiori Miyagawa, Saviana Stanescu, and Andrea Thome

Dream Act Union is a project of Re/Union Company. Re/Union Company creates non-traditional theater and performing art projects that explore socially-engaged themes. Different from the genre of political theater, Re/Union Company's work is about performance as activism. We aim to amuse, rouse, and move the audience while informing about all kinds of wonders and issues, through outrageous acts of performance. Re/Union Company is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas. email@example.com.
