Watch Leif Norman's fantastic footage of Bashir Lazhar, as director Ann Hodges tells us a bit about this moving piece. The show runs from March 14-24, tickets available at theatreprojectsmanitoba.ca.

Bashir Lazhar is the acclaimed English translation of de la Chenelière’s exquisite, humanistic and topical play about a substitute teacher helping a traumatized middle school class in the wake of his own path through violent upheaval. Dispensing with conventional teaching methods, he tries to prepare his students for an unpredictable world. Bashir Lazhar is a story concerned with the language of loss, the process of grieving and the things that compel us forward when our world is no longer recognizable. It is a celebration of survival through love.
