The Last Ship is the UK premiere of Sting's breath-taking new musical, an epic tale of community, hope and a great act of collective defiance.

When a sailor named Gideon Fletcher (Richard Fleeshman; Coronation Street, Ghost The Musical ) returns home after seventeen years at sea, tensions between past and future flare in both his family and his town. The local shipyard, around which Wallsend has always revolved, is closing and no-one knows what will come next, only that a half-built ship towers over the terraces. With the engine fired and pistons in motion, picket lines are drawn as foreman Jackie (Joe McGann) and his wife Peggy (Charlie Hardwick) fight to hold their community together in the face of the gathering storm.

With an outstanding score from multiple Grammy Award winner Sting, this new musical is personal, political and passionate.
