The Half Moon Youth Theatre Workshops began in 1974. Murray Edmond and Peter Conway were employed to work with young people in youth clubs and community centres throughout Tower Hamlets. Following some work with a group of young people on the Isle of Dogs, Murray Edmond worked with the young people to write a play about the relationship between the police and the youth at the time, following a real-life incident where young people from the Isle of Dogs had stolen a forklift truck. The group called themselves The Tiller Road Theatre Group.
