Following five sold-out development runs at the New Diorama Theatre in 2019 and Southwark Playhouse in 2020, 2021 & 2022, plus an extended Riverside Studios run last summer, the full cast and creative team have been announced for the West End premiere of Operation Mincemeat, beginning performances at the Fortune Theatre on 29 March.
2023 Olivier Award nominated Robert Hastie directs, with choreography by Olivier Award nominated Jenny Arnold, set and costume design by 2023 Olivier Award nominated Ben Stones, lighting by Tony Award, six-time Olivier Award and BAFTA Award winning Mark Henderson, sound by Olivier Award winning Mike Walker, orchestrations and vocal arrangements by Grammy Award winning and Tony, Emmy, Olivier award nominated Steve Sidwell, and casting by Pearson Casting.
Operation Mincemeat is written and composed by David Cumming, Felix Hagan, Natasha Hodgson and Zoë Roberts, who form SpitLip.
SpitLip said: “We are staggered and amazed at the amount of talent now propping up our sweaty, gnarled bodies. The light from their reflected glory is absolutely blinding and we plan to bathe in it for as long as physically possible. West End, let’s go!”
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?
