About the Show/Event
Information for Operation Mincemeat at Southwark Playhouse, Inner London (Musical). The year is 1943 and we're losing the war. Luckily, we're about to gamble all our futures on a stolen corpse. 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.
