From the mouth of one man comes the soul of every man seen through the eyes of any man.
"Angry, funny, sad, wise, and curious, each man is, as the title says, any one man, and if you are not one of the characters played by Peters, you know someone who is." King Magazine.
Any1man was written by George A. Peters, II and Brandon F. Johnson, alumni of Morehouse College and was first performed in Atlanta in 2005. The story is told through six different characters who, though they differ greatly, easily represent the various faces of any one man trying to assert his identity despite the myriad of challenges facing Black men today. Each tackles his own personal demon whether it be lust, irresponsibility, gender confines or fear of success. Willie, a womanizing aspiring musician is haunted by the abandonment of his dad. Wesley, a hopeful dancer and artist, feels forced to fit in to a gender construction of masculinity that doesn't include him. Bishop, a wise beggar, has lost his way on his road to success, and finds himself "missing." Together their voices mix to tell the story any one man's journey to find his masculinity, when he's not exactly clear what that means.
