Hello, we are Haste Theatre… probably.
We are going to tell you the absolute truth and the best story you will ever hear – honestly!
Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov is shot in a very real basement.
A woman definitely jumps into icy depths, from a very existent bridge… we think.
Someone escapes a gruesome end, possibly?
And it’s all 100% completely true.
Multi-award winning Haste Theatre use genre blending physical theatre to lead you through their wild and playful version of a story steeped in fact and history, which unravels both.
Who was the real Anastasia? And in the words of the woman herself, “believe me or don’t, what does it matter?”
