Trojan Horse

Tue 8 October - Sat 12 October

By Helen Monks and Matt Woodhead

‘Why should I continue to be tolerant? When the world has been so intolerant of me.’

Trojan Horse was a local story that hit the national press, accusing ‘hardline’ Muslim teachers and governors of plotting extremism in Birmingham schools. Adapted from the real-life testimonies of those at the heart of the UK Government’s inquiry, critically acclaimed theatre-company LUNG investigates what really happened. Originally developed with Leeds Playhouse, Amnesty International Freedom of Expression & Fringe First Award-winning production, Trojan Horse is the story of a community torn apart by racial division, ‘British values’ and the culture of Prevent.

LUNG’s previous productions include The 56, Chilcot and E15.
