I Was the Voice of Democracy by Associate Professor of Theater Brian Herrera is an hour-long, solo performance that recalls the true story of a 17-year-old who is briefly thrust into a peculiar kind of fame when a patriotic speech he writes on a whim ends up winning a national contest. Through autobiographical storytelling, this one-person, multimedia event offers a mix of analysis and anecdote, both hilarious and heartbreaking, as Herrera puzzles through the memories, mementos and artifacts that comprise the archive of his own teenage experience.

Free and open to the public, limited seating on first-come, first-seated basis.
