Playwright’s Note

by Kirsten Childs

I remember reading The Three Musketeers when I was a young girl growing up in twentieth century Civil-Rights era America. The story was a perfect escape from the cares of Black life; full of excitement and derring-do and romance, and wild, wonderful exploits of bold young men. As I reveled in the story’s enchantment, it was not lost on me, however, that bold young men I personally knew would have been summarily mowed down by the powers-that-be, had they exhibited a mere fraction of the boldness of The Musketeers. Because my bold young men were Black men in America (google Emmett Till), and the Musketeers clearly were White, since their story was written by a White man.

Or so I thought.

Imagine my surprise to learn that Alexandre Dumas, the author of this wonderful tale was himself Black, born of a Black man.

Imagine my glee upon hearing a story (possibly apocryphal but definitely awesome) about Dumas where he was confronted with the racist question, “If you are a quarter Black, and your father’s half Black and your grandfather’s all Black, does that make your great-grandfather a monkey?” To which Dumas replied, “And that’s where my ancestry ends and yours begins.”

Well, damn! How could such a writer and his works not be completely seductive to a young girl who had to watch her Black brethren chafe against the strictures of a society determined to quell their arrogant fabulousness?

And so, this work is my love letter to my supremely confident, arrogantly fabulous hero Alexandre Dumas. Long may he swashbuckle while throwing shade at those who deserve it.
