Event Information

'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. Acclaimed theatre-company LUNG have adapted from the real-life testimonies of those at the heart of the UK Government's inquiry in order to create this hard-hitting production.

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

All performances will offer an Urdu translation of the play if required, via headsets available on the evening at the door.

Please note: Strobe lighting will take place during the performance.

Perhaps the bravest and most astutely political of shows…relevant, terrifying and beautifully told...
