The Story

1943 is not a good year for the Allies during the war. They are losing. Badly. Fortunately, the British army has the ideal solution for this issue. The answer? Why stake everything on a stolen corpse, of course? Operation Mincemeat is the crazy covert mission that might have been the turning point that helped the Allied Nations win the Second World War. The musical is something you would expect when Singin' in the Rain meets Strangers on a Train or Noel Coward meets Noel Fielding. But how could a well-groomed corpse trick Hitler?
