When Irma Herrera gives her name its correct Spanish pronunciation, people sometimes assume she's not a REAL American-never mind that the native English-speaker's family has been in South Texas for generations, or that she is an award-winning social justice activista, lawyer, and journalist.
Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name? is one woman's journey from a small segregated South Texas town to California's multicultural mecca. What part of Irma's identity is she asked to give up for the sake of fitting in and getting along? How can a simple introduction turn into a potential battle to be heard and seen? Weaving history and comedic insights into stories about names, this solo performer invites us to consider how open and welcoming we really are.
