MONSIEUR IBRAHIM AND THE FLOWERS OF THE QUR’AN

Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt Tue 17 Jan - Sat 11 Feb, 2006

When teenage tearaway Moses finds an unlikely friend in the mysterious shopkeeper Monsieur Ibrahim, their travels take them on a journey of self-discovery, amidst a vibrant and ever-changing backdrop that transports them from the Rue Bleu in Paris to the whirling dervishes of the Golden Crescent.
