The Marsh Berkeley Presents "Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?"

Date/Time

This event occurs weekly, on Saturday.

Description

Due to popular demand, Irma Herrera’s Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name? will transfer from The Marsh San Francisco to The Marsh Berkeley in February. Weaving history and comedic insights into stories about names, this hit solo show sheds light and throws 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.
