Operation Mincemeat Information

Operation Mincemeat transfers to its newest London home, Riverside Studios. Operation Mincemeat tickets will be available on London Theatre soon.

The Operation Mincemeat musical is based on the World War Two mission of the same name, which saw two members of British intelligence dress a deceased man as a Royal Marines officer to acquire information. The well-dressed corpse would eventually go on to trick Adolf Hitler, and the secret cross-dressing mission helped the Allied Forces win the war. Operation Mincemeat combines social commentary and farce in order to unpack the unbelievable true story.

In a five-star review of Operation Mincemeat for London Theatre, our critic said: “From its opening chorus, Operation Mincemeat is a fizzy, clever, compelling new musical. Operation Mincemeat speaks perfectly to the current political moment, but in subtle ways.”

Operation Mincemeat premiered at New Diorama Theatre in 2019, and has since played three extended periods at Southwark Playhouse in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Now, Operation Mincemeat heads west to Hammersmith. Operation Mincemeat flies the flag for original British theatre, as it's created by homegrown company SpitLip.

Tickets to Operation Mincemeat will be available soon.

Our review

From its opening chorus, Operation Mincemeat is a fizzy, clever, compelling new musical. Though billed as a work-in-progress, don't come in expecting a half-finished evening: this is a tight and carefully considered piece that deserves to be seen on a much larger stage soon. Composition and writing team SplitLip (consisting of David Cumming, Felix Hagan, Natasha Hodgson, and Zoe Roberts, who also make up four of the five members of the acting company) have been publicly workshopping the show...
