Grand Duchess Anastasia Romanova is shot in a basement with the rest of her family in Russia. 

A woman is dragged out of a canal in Berlin. A girl escapes a bloody end. A woman jumps from a bridge into icy depths.

A river of rising communism, imminent fascism, and economic crisis leaves space for identity to be lost, gained, fought over and cascade through cracks.  Multi-award winning Haste Theatre use physical theatre, stunning imagery and movement, song, multiple languages and a multi-functional set to lead you through their fierce retelling of a true story that treads the fine line between fact and fiction. Who was the real Anastasia and does it really matter?

This is multi-award winning Haste Theatre’s newest show (supported by Arts Council England)
