The production will now run at the venue from the 23rd July.

Following its postponement of its run in May 2020 due to the closure of theatres, new “work-in-progress” dates have been announced for the musical, which will play in the Southwark Playhouse’s The Large from the 23rd July.

Operation Mincemeat originally played a sell-out run in The Little in January 2020. Those who had booked for the show’s return in May last year will be given a 72-hour exclusive booking period from today in order to rearrange previously bought tickets, followed by a general public on-sale on Thursday 10th June at 10am.

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?

The musical was created by SpitLip (Felix Hagan, Natasha Hodgson and Zoe Roberts) and won The Stage Debut award for Best Composer/Lyricist and the Off-West End award for Best Company Ensemble.

Directed by Donnacadh O’Briain, the cast for the production includes: David Cumming, Claire-Marie Hall
Natasha Hodgson, Jak Malone and Zoe Roberts. Meanwhile, the creative team includes: choreography by Jenny Arnold, set and costume design by Helen Coyston and lighting design by Helen Coyston.

Operation Mincemeat will play at the Southwark Playhouse from the 23rd July until the 7th August.
