The foundations of Half Moon Young People’s Theatre were laid in 1975 when Peter Conway and Murray Edmonds answered an advert in Time Out and were taken on to run the Youth Project: drama workshops in youth clubs across Tower Hamlets. It was first based in Alie Street, then at the Berner Club, and finally at Oxford House. In 1977, the youth programme was expanded to include professional productions for young audiences. Funding from Tower Hamlets and the Inner London Education Authority led to expansion and the company moved towards a stronger educational emphasis and a comprehensive young people’s theatre programme.
