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 is Singin’ In The Rain meets Strangers On A Train, Noel Fielding meets Noel Coward, in a new collaboration between three members of award winning Kill the Beast and glam-punk composer Felix Hagan.
Smartly funny, well-crafted, and glibly entertaining
Operation Mincemeat is comedically genius and musically masterful
A winning romp of a musical with killer songs performed by an incredibly strong ensemble and packed full of gags
Masterclass of macabre musical comedy about a corpse that helped win the Second World War
Defying both expectations and categorisation, Operation Mincemeat is two acts of glib glamour that glow with theatrical invention and deliver laughs by the gallon
Glorious spoof musical about an eccentric real-life WWII operation
An abundance of wit and one-liners can’t make up for the lack of directorial focus in SpitLip’s antiwar satire
The show is undoubtedly funny but rather messy
