Following sell-out engagements at New Diorama Theatre and Southwark Playhouse, Operation Mincemeat has a new London home from spring 2022. Operation Mincemeat will transfer to Riverside Studios next month, with performances from 28 April to 9 July.

Set in World War Two, Operation Mincemeat follows the true story of a secret mission that assisted the Allies in defeating the Nazis, which involved well-dressed corpses tricking Adolf Hitler.

In a five star review of Operation Mincemeat at Southwark Playhouse for, Hailey Bachrach said: “Operation Mincemeat speaks perfectly to the current political moment, but in subtle ways. Its mockery of the privileges of white masculinity, the insulating power of wealth, the recklessness of government guided by and for the few, also points at the frustrating and insidious truth of privilege.”

Operation Mincemeat is written and composed by SpitLip, made up of David Cumming, Felix Hagan, Natasha Hodgson and Zoe Roberts. Donnacadh O’Briain directs, with choreography by Jenny Arnold, scenic and costume design by Helen Coyston, lighting design by Sherry Coenen and sound design by Mike Walker.

The Riverside Studios is currently home to Ava: The Secret Conversations and Bloody Difficult Women.

Operation Mincemeat is at Riverside Studios from 28 April to 9 July.
