A stirring musical. Some of the most thrilling choral writing I've heard in a British musical.

Brand new tour

Superstar Sting stars in his critically acclaimed musical, The Last Ship when it docks in North America in 2020. Featuring original music by the Police frontman himself, The Last Ship is heartfelt and empowering musical about Newcastle's shipbuilding community reaching breaking point in the 1980s.

Debuting in Chicago in 2014, Sting's The Last Ship has enjoyed runs on both Broadway and in London's West End. Inspired by Sting's own childhood in the North East of England, The Last Ship features some of the Grammy winner's best-loved songs including "Island of Souls", "All This Time" and "When We Dance".

WHAT IS THE LAST SHIP ABOUT?

When their shipyard finally closes in the 1980s, foreman Jackie White inspires his co-workers to take over the shipyard and build one final ship. Meanwhile, prodigal son Gideon returns home after his father's death, having left fifteen years ago and abandoned his relationship with Meg whom he left behind. Is he too late to make amends and start their lives together?
