The Trojan Horse inquiry was a local story that hit the national press, accusing ‘hardline’ Muslim teachers and governors of plotting extremism in Birmingham schools.
Drawing on over 200 hours of interviews conducted with teachers, students, parents and governors over two and a half years, critically acclaimed theatre-company LUNG investigate the truth behind the headlines.
Trojan Horse is the strikingly pertinent story of a community torn apart by racial division, ‘British values’ and the culture of Prevent – the government’s controversial terrorism prevention strategy.
The multi-award-winning drama examines the media storm which saw Birmingham schools facing high levels of press scrutiny.
Trojan Horse aims to open up a dialogue. Every performance will be followed by a post-show discussion with Professor John Holmwood, an expert witness in the professional misconduct cases brought against the teachers, and other individuals and groups.
