Operation Mincemeat

14 May - 15 June, 2019


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.

This production is supported by PRS Foundation's The Open Fund for Organistations.

The Company

SpitLip is a new musical theatre collaboration between three members of award-winning comedy troupe Kill the Beast - Zoe Roberts, David Cumming and Natasha Hodgson - and glam-punk composer and band leader Felix Hagan. Having collaborated on several Kill the Beast shows as well as UK tours for Felix Hagan And The Family, they can’t wait to smash comedy into rock into sweat into war, and see what hits the ground.

Between them, they have performed all over the world, featured on BBC Radio, and written for stage and screen.They’re hugely excited to bring their trademark fast-paced energy, intricate lyrics and joyful stagecraft to a story that tackles national pride, dumb luck and what the hell we’re all fighting for in the first place.
