'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 is a national touring theatre company, developing innovative and politically driven work that broadens horizons and investigates modern Britain. LUNG’s previous productions include The 56, Chilcot and E15.
