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

'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? 

After sold-out development runs at the New Diorama Theatre in 2019 and Southwark Playhouse in 2020, 2021 & 2022, plus an extended Riverside Studios run this summer, Operation Mincemeat transfers to the West End.

David Cumming, Claire-Marie Hall, Natasha Hodgson, Jak Malone and Zöe Roberts, the 2023 Off-West End ‘Best Musical Production’ award winning cast (Southwark Playhouse / Riverside Studios) will lead the company for this West End run. Understudies joining them are: Seán Carey, Geri Allan, Christian Andrews and Holly Sumpton. Casting details are given for information only and takes no responsibility for any alterations or non-appearance of cast members stated.
