The UK premiere of Sting's personal, political and passionate musical is an epic tale of community, hope and a great act of collective defiance. The Last Ship features an original score with music and lyrics by Sting.
Gideon Fletcher, a sailor, returns home from sea to discover the ship-building life he left behind in chaos. The yard is closing and no one knows what will come next. With the engine fired and pistons in motion, picket lines are drawn as foreman Jackie and his wife Peggy fight to hold their community together in the face of the gathering storm.
Featuring : Joe Mcgann, Charlie Hardwick and Richard Fleeshman.
Music and lyrics by Sting. Directed by Lorne Campbell. Northern Stage in association with Karl Sydow and Kathryn Schenker.
