Monsieur Lazhar

Dates - Friday 5 October - Sunday 7th of October
Location: Nambour Civic Centre, Nambour

Monsieur Lazharis a profoundly moving story about a group of young school children coming to terms with the adult world before their time and the inspirational educator who transforms their lives.

The story is set in Montreal, where the beloved teacher of a Year 6 class has abruptly passed away.  Having learned of the incident in the newspaper, Bachir Lazhar, a 55 year-old Algerian immigrant, makes his way to the school and offers his services as a substitute teacher.  He’s in the right place at the right time and is quickly hired to fill in.

The substantial cultural gap between Lazhar & his new class is immediately apparent; but little by little, Lazhar comes to understand this motley but endearing group, and whilethe class begins to heal, nobody in the school is aware of Lazhar’s painful past; nor do they suspect that his own place in the world is in jeopardy.
