Moving On

Moving On was a professional theatre production created with and for the Tallaght community and enjoyed by audiences of all age. It was written and directed by Jenny Macdonald and performed by professional actors John Doran, Jed Murray, Sorcha Shanahan and Jacinta Sheerin, and community actors Kevin O’Raferty and Charlie Webster.

It grew out of a long period of interactive creative research within the community as part of Headin’ Out project 2014 and Culture Night, 2014.

Jenny Macdonald collected stories from Tallaght residents about what brought them there and kept them there over the past 40 years. Stories included those of “migrants” from other parts of Dublin in the early 70’s and of international migrants since 2000. The stories were woven into five interconnected scenes, each performed in the front room of a local home.
