Operation Mincemeat

About This Show

The hilarious and sharp-witted musical that tells the story of a real-life – and extremely bizarre – WWII operation, has arrived in London’s West End, after a string of critically acclaimed fringe shows. Having garnered a staggering 58 5-star reviews and unanimous critical acclaim, Operation Mincemeat is booking until Sep 23rd at the Fortune Theatre.

The year is 1943 and we’re losing the war. Luckily, we’re about to gamble all our futures on a stolen corpse. Singin’ in the Rain meets Strangers on a Train, Noël Coward meets Noel Fielding, the 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?

Operation Mincemeat: A New Musical is directed by award-winning theatre group Splitlip, who are known for their fast-paced comedy and glam-punk music. This witty production follows their trademark stamp, because critics everywhere have praised its cleverly written humour and toe-tapping soundtrack.

This gung-ho musical could be just what the West End needs


A joyously homegrown new comedy musical. The show is witty, mocking, camp and joyous, not to mention immensely tuneful
