“heart-breaking, uplifting, intimate and universal”

★★★★★ The Stage

“a stirring musical… some of the most thrilling choral writing I’ve heard in a British musical”

★★★★ The Guardian

After a receiving widespread critical acclaim and five-star reviews at its official opening in Newcastle’s Northern Stage, The Last Ship sets sail on a UK and Ireland Tour and will be stopping off at Nottingham Playhouse.

Lead by a brilliant ensemble cast including Richard Fleeshman, Charlie Hardwick, Joe McGann and Frances McNamee, this show features a moving and heartfelt story of love, life and hope. This personal musical inspired by Sting’s own childhood experiences, shows the collective defiance of a community facing the demise of the shipbuilding industry alongside a poignant and moving romantic tale of childhood sweethearts and the adults they grew up to become.

Featuring a awe-inspiring and impressive set by Olivier-nominated 59 Productions, The Last Ship is the UK and Ireland premiere of Sting’s heartfelt and empowering new musical. It features a TONY-nominated original score with 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.

Music and lyrics by Sting.
Directed by Lorne Campbell.
