Date: Sunday, October 13, 2019

Time: 7:00pm

Phone: 415-473-6800

SIX of the Bay Area's most critically-acclaimed, award-winning, and beloved solo shows from the Marsh, San Francisco Fringe Festival, and Berkeley Rep are coming to the Marin Center for the SF SOLO Series 2019-2020! Due to mature language and themes, this series is recommended for ages 15 and up.

Irma Herrera: Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?: What's in a name? A minefield of misplaced notions—comical, sad, demeaning. Hearing Irma Herrera give her name its correct Spanish pronunciation leads people to make all sorts of assumptions about her. Irma's observations from the front-lines, notes from American history, and laugh out-loud humor allow us to consider what it will take for all of us to get along. "Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?" sheds light and throws shade on ALL our prejudices.
