Event Description

A sold-out culminating weekend, after weeks of exuberant word-of-mouth and Social Media buzz, has extended the run of Peter J. Harris’ JOHNSON CHRONICLES, a bold, poetic, conversational, ‘body memoir’ about the Black Penis, on stage for three more shows at LA’s Matrix Theatre: Friday, August 11; Saturday, August 12, 8pm; and Sunday, August 13, 7pm.

The JOHNSON CHRONICLES, a poetic, conversational, ‘body memoir’ about Black Masculinity by American Book Award winner Peter J. Harris, claims the uncensored spirit of The Vagina Monologues, and arrives this summer at LA’s Matrix Theatre against a persistent, painful backdrop of police killings of Black men featuring Terrell Tilford in a solo performance as My Man, slinging Truth and Tall Tales about the pleasure & pain of living with Johnson, the all-purpose African American euphemism for his penis. My Man’s meditation confronts his personal, political and mythological Johnson in bold, funny, sensual, historical vignettes, intellectual dozens, vows, and affirmations about first sex, size, fatherhood, intimacy and intimate violence, vasectomy, and the impact of racism on his humanity and sexuality. My Man laments how lonely he felt at the onset of wet dreams and how ED hovers over every adult sexual encounter, while always shouting a reminder to “watch my balls!”
