    About this event

    MISSION SOLO is the brainchild of Ady Lady, a solo performer who often appears at Stage Werx. Aware that the theater is on shaky grounds financially due to the pandemic, she took it upon herself to organize a series of benefit shows at Stage Werx. All proceeds from Mission Solo performances go directly to Stage Werx. We're glad you'll be joining us to see some of the superb solo plays developed at Stage Werx and by doing so will also help us get back on our feet.

    Irma Herrera

    “Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?”

    “Speaks volumes about the ingrained power structures in American society." ~Mercury News

    ABOUT THE SHOW: What’s in a name? A minefield of misplaced notions — comical, sad, damaging — that speak volumes. Drawing on personal experience, American history, observations from the frontlines, and laugh-out-loud humor, "Why Would I Mispronounce My Own Name?"r throws shade on our assumptions and prejudices and explores the toll of stereotyping and dehumanization.

    ABOUT THE PERFORMER: Irma Herrera spent three plus decades working as a civil rights lawyer in San Francisco. Her commitment to social justice is now expressed through writing and performing.

    Fred Pitts

    “Aren’t You . . .?”

    “While humorous, “Aren’t You…?” is also a timely examination of both conscious racism and unconscious bias.” ~ Metro Silicon Valley

    ABOUT THE SHOW: Fred sets out to tour all 21 of California’s Mission churches. He discovers that being black makes him an instant celebrity – the question is which one? Full of Pitts’ personal experiences and love of history, AREN’T YOU…? perfectly blends delightful insights into the Missions, cogent thoughts on early California settlers’ interactions with Native Americans, and the experience of walking in the shoes of an African American male.

    ABOUT THE PERFORMER: Fred Pitts is a San Francisco-based actor. He was an Emergency Physician for 25+ years, and now works in the field of Drug Safety.
