The Last Ship

The Last Ship




Featuring music and lyrics by award-winning English singer and musician Sting, this dramatic musical is based on his own childhood experiences in Wallsend, a shipbuilding town in northeastern England.


Story:

Gideon Fletcher grows up in a town called Wallsend in northeastern England where proud, hardworking men build ships at the local shipyard - the center of the town’s history and economy. Gideon dreams of doing more with his life, though, and leaves his home and the girl he loves to travel the world. When he returns after 15 years, he finds that everything has changed dramatically, spurring him to join the town in a monumental effort to fight for their collective future.
