MINCEMEAT is a narrative that crosses time and territory to find answers to questions of identity and matters of life and death.
Cardboard Citizens takes over a Shoreditch warehouse for this production, unravelling the truths and the untruths surrounding a World War Two intelligence operation.
KIDNAP! In 2009, a group of squatters kidnap a judge and put him on trial for a sixty-six year-old crime.
SUICIDE! In 1909, a young and lice-ridden Adolf Hitler washes up in a homeless shelter in Vienna; forty-six years later he will commit suicide.
MURDER? In 1943, the body of a military man is washed up on a Spanish beach, helping prevent the death of thousands. An accidental hero - or a man who never was?
Conspiracy theory meets chaos theory, tongue never a million miles from cheek. This is Cardboard Citizens.
"I was utterly gripped by this marvellous production" (Michael Billington, The Guardian ****)
Mincemeat is performed by a professional cast including ex-homeless actors.
