“It’s fast paced, full of laughs and a delight to behold"
Have you heard of ‘Operation Mincemeat’? No, I’m not talking about the World War Two operation in which members of MI5 used the body of a homeless man and a faked identity along with fake documents to disguise the 1943 allied invasion of Sicily, I’m talking about the brand new hit musical currently playing at The Fortune Theatre! Yes it sounds like an unlikely source material for a musical but this tale of espionage and clever planning makes for a great show! With a cult following (called ‘Minfluencers') and a glittering script, music and lyrics from writers David Cumming, Felix Hagan, Natasha Hodgson and Zoë Roberts, this show is one not to be missed!
We meet the real life secret agents, Charles Cholmondeley (David Cumming) & Ewen Montagu (Holly Sumpton), who formed the plan when tasked with finding a way to defeat Germany in the war. Along with a fellow MI5 agent Ian Fleming (Zoë Roberts), the secretary Miss Hester Leggett (Jak Malone) and ‘Tea Girl’ Jean (Claire Marie Hall) they form an unlikely group who just about save the day!
