AdminHistoryThe Moving Target theatre company was founded by Carole Charnow and Alison Sterling in London in 1986. Their first production was Howard Zinn’s 'Emma', a musical about Emma Goldman, which they renamed 'Rebel in Paradise'. However, their aim was to focus on new work written and directed by women; the company's first original commission was Olwen Wymark's 'Brezhnev's Children' (originally titled 'Damskii Decameron'). Some of their other productions were 'The Art of Self-Defense', 'Tales of the Undead', 'Quilt', and 'Born Moscow 1985', which were performed at the ICA, Young Vic Theatre in London and the Edinburgh Festival.

The company ceased operations in 1996. Carole Charnow and Alison Sterling have both gone on to have successful careers in arts production in the UK, and the USA.
