BAA’s Annie Grace will perform with multiple Grammy Award winner Sting in his musical, The Last Ship, in its six-week engagement in Toronto. Playing trade minister Baroness Tynedale, Annie takes the stage at the Princess of Wales Theatre from Saturday 9th February.
Featuring original music and lyrics by Sting as well as a few of his best-loved songs — Island of Souls, All This Time and When We Dance — The Last Ship is set in the shipbuilding community in Tyne and Wear, and tells the story of a young man who returns home after seventeen years at sea.
The tensions between past and future flare in both his family and his town. He finds that the local shipyard, around which the community has always revolved, is closing and no one knows what will come next, only that a half-built ship towers over the terraces of working-class homes.
With the engine fired and pistons in motion, picket lines are drawn as the foreman and his wife fight to hold their community together in the face of the gathering storm.
