Trojan Horse

Tue 22 Oct

LUNG

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. Amnesty International Freedom of Expression and Fringe First Award-winning, Trojan Horse is the story of a community torn apart by racial division, ‘British values’ and the culture of Prevent.

Urdu translation through headsets is available for this performance for audience members who may need it.

The performance will be followed by a post-show discussion chaired by Madiha Ansari with Professor John Holmwood.
