Operation Mincemeat

Operation Mincemeat

The year is 1943 and we’re losing the war. Luckily, we’re about to gamble all our futures on a stolen corpse.

“If you’re looking for something funny, this macabre musical comedy is top of the list. It might sound unlikely, but the absurd story about a secret operation to fool Hitler during WWII actually makes for a really enjoyable night out. Don’t believe us? Have a gander at some of the reviews!”


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.

Critic reviews

Smartly funny, well-crafted, and glibly entertaining


Operation Mincemeat is comedically genius and musically masterful

The Upcoming

A winning romp of a musical with killer songs performed by an incredibly strong ensemble and packed full of gags

Everything Theatre

Masterclass of macabre musical comedy about a corpse that helped win the Second World War

The Stage

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

Time Out

An abundance of wit and one-liners can’t make up for the lack of directorial focus in SpitLip’s antiwar satire

The Guardian

The show is undoubtedly funny but rather messy
