About

Amnesty International Freedom of Expression and Fringe First award-winning LUNG (E15, The 56 and Chilcot) follows the real-life stories of Muslim teachers and governors who were accused of plotting extremism in Birmingham schools.

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, Trojan Horse is the story of a community torn apart by racial division, ‘British values’ and the culture of prevent.

All performances will have Urdu translation delivered via headsets.

This show is taking part in our £1 Tickets project.

Funded by Arts Council England and Reflective Practice.
