Quirky, Delightful, Funny

See it if You liked the parody of 39 Steps, but wished it was a musical. Your sense of humour is BBC Radio comedy. You want to watch great actors.

Don't see it if You crave a highly polished show.

Delightful, Great writing, Great acting, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You want a fast paced musical with great songs, writing and laugh out loud moments.

Don't see it if You want something with a high production value - the set is minimal but is used really creatively.

Great acting, Must see, Intelligent, Hilarious, Exquisite

See it if I’m not someone who is into British or War History but this musical is a gem. Seen in 7 times in one month to try and absorb all the details

Don't see it if Everyone should see it honestly. It’s phenomenal. Especially people who don’t normally like musicals this might be a good one to start with

Must see, Refreshing, Riveting, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You want a fast paced, incredible piece of theatre. Music is amazing. Multirolling performances are mind blowing. Hilarious, clever, moving

Don't see it if You want traditional, walk on walk off staging with simple gender conformation in roles. (I must add this is not used as a gimmick) Read more

Critic Reviews (5)

The Telegraph (UK)
January 21st, 2022
For a previous production

With a versatile cast ... the piece makes shrewd points about old-world chauvinism. Shout-outs should go to director Donnacadh O’Briain, and to Gabriel Chernick, on keys and presiding over the small band.

For a previous production

This show takes you by surprise at every turn, with many clever ideas that come off, and some that don’t, but which still make you smile.

Time Out London
July 9th, 2021
For a previous production

‘Operation Mincemeat’ ... is itself slicker than it wants to appear, and clearly well-drilled. This really is an ensemble show, and SpitLip prove a winning one. Their style may not be for everyone, but you’d have to have a very stiff upper lip indeed for it not to break into laughter.

The Guardian (UK)
July 27th, 2021
For a previous production

There’s a lot of talent on show in 'Operation Mincemeat', but it would need several significant cuts to have a real emotional impact. It runs for two and a half hours; there is a sharper, shorter show buried inside.

The Independent (UK)
January 20th, 2022
For a previous production

It is a totally brilliant musical. [It] has the fast-paced humour of a fringe show, yet its full-length musical run time never feels like a drag. It certainly helps that the musical talent on display is exceptional.
