Why go and see it?

After sold-out runs at New Diorama Theatre (2019) and Southwark Playhouse (2020, 2021 & 2022), plus an extended Riverside Studios run this summer, Operation Mincemeat transfers to the West End.

Singin’ in the Rain meets Strangers on a Train, Noel Coward meets Noel Fielding, Operation Mincemeat is the fast-paced, hilarious and unbelievable true story of the twisted secret mission that won us World War II. The question is, how did a well-dressed corpse wrong-foot Hitler?

What the critics say

There are some big, blowsy shows around in the West End, but this little belter is staging its own audacious invasion plan.
- Suzi Feay, The Financial Times
a miraculous musical that tells the entire story in a kind of accelerated farce that is part Mel Brooks, part SIX, part Hamilton with a side order of One Man, Two Guvnors.
- Neil Norman, The Daily Mirror
a little show with a very big future.
- David Benedict, Variety
