The Marsh San Francisco Extends "Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?"


Dec 22, 2018 to Jan 26, 2019
05:00 PM until 06:00 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Saturday.


The Marsh San Francisco announces the extension of Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?, Irma Herrera’s hit solo show weaving history and comedic insights into stories about names, shedding light and throwing shade on societal prejudices and assumptions. When giving her name its correct Spanish pronunciation, she often gets the “where are you from?” question. The assumption: that she is a foreigner. Irma’s family has been in South Texas for generations, and the award-winning social justice activist, lawyer, and journalist thinks of herself as American as apple pie. 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.
