Synopsis


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 Singin' in the Rain meets Strangers on a Train, Noel Fielding meets Noel Coward.


Join us in discovering 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?
