Trojan Horse

By Helen Monks and Matt Woodhead
A LUNG and West Yorkshire Playhouse co-production

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 investigate what really happened. Originally developed with West Yorkshire Playhouse, Trojan Horse is the story of a community torn apart by racial division, ‘British values’ and the culture of Prevent.

Trojan Horse will be performed at Summerhall, Edinburgh Festival Fringe from 1 – 26 August. Book now:
