STING WILL PERFORM THE ROLE OF JACKIE WHITE AT EVERY PERFORMANCE.  

This personal, political and passionate new musical from 17-time Grammy Award®-winner Sting, is an epic account of a family, a community and a great act of defiance. THE LAST SHIP features an original, Tony®-nominated 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.” It is the proud story of when the last ship sails.

When a sailor named Gideon Fletcher returns home after seventeen years at sea, tensions between past and future flare in both his family and his town. 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. With the engine fired and pistons in motion, picket lines are drawn as foreman Jackie White (Sting) and his wife Peggy fight to hold their community together in the face of the gathering storm.
