“Yep, it’s the cult show that keeps returning and which gathers more fans as it rolls around London venues (New Diorama, Southwark Playhouse and now Riverside) playing bigger stages and allowing its cast to rewrite and refine what was already a delicious comic musical on its first outing. Who knows, it will probably be at the London Palladium next. It deserves to be, because this wonderfully inventive and very silly musical account of a top-secret WW2 operation to trick Hitler into believing that British troops were going to invade Sardinia is very witty, beady-eyed about the British class system and touching too.”
Review this show


Luckily, we’re about to gamble all our futures on a stolen corpse.

Following sold-out runs at the New Diorama Theatre in 2019 and Southwark Playhouse in 2020, 2021 and earlier in 2022, Operation Mincemeat, (our little show that everyone seems to like a lot), is extending its run at our new home in Riverside Studios.

Singin’ in the Rain meets Strangers on a Train, Noel Coward meets Noel Fielding, 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?
