'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.
