Upstream Theater presents Bashir Lazhar

by Evelyne de la Chenelière 

English by Morwyn Brebner

Featuring J. Samuel Davis

with live music by Farshid Soltanshahi

An Algerian refugee in Montreal is hurriedly hired as a substitute for a class of sixth graders who, like him, have experienced recent trauma. As he devotes his heart and soul to his students, his unorthodox methods challenge a system embedded in routine. A timely and poetic piece about grief and healing, love and survival. In 2011 the play was adapted into the Oscar-nominated film Monsieur Lazhar.
