The Three Musketeers

Friday 30 October, 2-3pm

 

Spearheaded by Open Book Associate Adam Courting, The Three Musketeers will explore Dumas’ swashbuckling epic through a modern lens, reimagining the original characters as their diverse, 2020 counterparts.

Dumas was of dual black and white heritage, which offers a fascinating historical examination of interracial relationships in high society and illuminates an inspirational literary figure of significance with African/Caribbean roots. The Black Lives Matter movement was also an inspiration for this project in seeking to highlight the historical contributions of African/Caribbean creatives in helping to shape the world as we know it.

The production features four professional actors, Adam as narrator, and filmed contributions from young people across London.
