‘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, and winner of Amnesty International Freedom of Expression & Fringe First awards, 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 56Chilcot and E15.

‘Perhaps the bravest and most astutely political of shows…relevant, terrifying and beautifully told…‘ ★★★★★ WhatsOnStage
