LUNG in association with Leeds Playhouse

Trojan Horse

by Helen Monks and Matt Woodhead

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

Amnesty International Freedom of Expression & Fringe First Award-winning production Trojan Horse explores 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 investigate what really happened. Originally developed with Leeds Playhouse, Trojan Horse is the story of a community torn apart by racial division, ‘British values’ and the culture of Prevent.
