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.
We use genre blending physical theatre to lead you through our 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?”
This is our newest show (supported by Arts Council England).

In a world where no one plays, no one questions and no one ever leaves, four women work in an office high above the city to anonymously return lost items. Everything runs like clockwork – until one day a box mysteriously bounces back…
As the women embark in a mission that takes them out of the city and out of their comfort zones, they unwittingly find themselves with the future of humanity in their hands.
