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. Featuring our very own BAA client Annie Grace.
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.
Opening at Northern Stage on 12th March and touring the UK through the Spring.
Opens at Theatre Royal, Glasgow from 18th – 23rd June.
