Auditions for the opening production of the Lafayette College Theater 2000-01 season are being held 7 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27 and 4 p.m. the following day in the Williams Center Black Box Theater.

The production will be an outdoor performance of Aimé Césaire’s A Tempest on the grounds of McKelvy House, High and Brodhead Streets, from Sept. 28-30.

Freely adapted from The Tempest, Césaire’s play transports Prospero, Ariel, Caliban, and other characters from Shakespeare’s original to a world where the rich traditions of Africa and the Caribbean come into conflict with the forces of imperialism.

Lit by torches and accompanied by live musicians, A Tempest, under the direction of Suzanne Westfall, associate professor of English and theater, seeks to connect its audiences with the rituals that unite diverse theater practices across time and among cultures.
