My Name Is 

Haste Theatre Company

Hello, we are Haste Theatre… probably.

We are going to tell you the absolute best, totally genuine, story you have ever heard – honestly!

Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanov is absolutely shot in a very real basement.

A woman certainly jumps from a very existent bridge… we think a young woman truthfully maybe escapes a gruesome end.

And it’s all completely 100% true.



Multi international-award winning Haste Theatre uses genre-blending physical theatre, stunning imagery, movement, song and multiple languages to lead you through their fierce and playful version of a true story that treads the fine line between fact and fiction. Who was the real Anastasia Romanov? And in the words of the woman herself, "believe me or don't, what does it matter?"

"Soars with brilliant comic timing, physicality and 100% committed satire"


"A highly original hour of, funny and highly watchable"

Ought to be clowns

"The London International Mime Festival may have ended forever but whatever replaces it should surely welcome Haste Theatre with its tale of Anastasia through its doors."
