Description

Irma Herrera’s solo show "Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?" weaves history and comedic insights into stories about names as she sheds light and throws shade on societal prejudices and assumptions. When giving her name its correct Spanish pronunciation, some people assume she’s a foreigner – despite the fact that Irma’s family has been in South Texas for generations, or that she is an award-winning social justice activist, lawyer, and journalist. Coming to The Marsh San Francisco this October, Irma’s notes from American history and laugh out-loud humor invite audience members to consider what it will take for everyone to get along.
