Following the forced postponement of a May 2020 run due to the closure of theatres, Southwark Playhouse announce rescheduled “work-in-progress” dates for Operation Mincemeat in The Large from 23 July to 7 August 2021
Operation Mincemeat played a sell-out run in The Little in January 2020 and was due to return in May 2020 before theatres shut
Existing bookers will be given a 72-hour exclusive booking period from today, Monday 7 June, in order to rearrange previously bought tickets, followed by a general public on-sale on Thursday 10 June at 10am
All seating will be socially distanced until the government announcement on 14 June 2021 regarding the potential lifting of social distancing, when this may change – further announcement to follow
The year is 1943 and we’re losing the war. 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, Operation Mincemeat is back. Having spent lockdown rewriting the show, weeping and eating biscuits, SpitLip are pleased to announce they will be debuting this newer, bigger and (somehow) even better version in summer 2021 with 14 exclusive work-in-progress performances.
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?
Operation Mincemeat won The Stage Debut award for Best Composer/Lyricist, the Off-West End award for Best Company Ensemble, and was listed in the Observer’s Top 10 shows of the year.
