Irma Herrera's Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?

What's in a name? A minefield of misplaced notions -- some comical, some sad, and some demeaning. PlaywrightIrma Herrera's observations from the frontlines, notes from American history, and laugh out-loud humor allow us to consider what it will take for all of us to get along. When Herrera gives her name its correct Spanish pronunciation, some people assume she's a foreigner. She's not. Herrera proudly claims her Tejano roots and her Mexican and American identity as well as her native languages: Spanish and English. Her solo play Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name? both sheds light and throws shade on our prejudices and assumptions. See it at The Marsh Upstairs Studio Theater in San Francisco.
