The Last Ship
The Last Ship, the acclaimed musical by the internationally renowned musician Sting, is coming to the Festival Theatre, Edinburgh!
About The Last Ship
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The UK premiere of Sting’s personal, political and passionate musical is an epic tale of community, hope and a great act of collective defiance. The Last Ship features an original score with music and lyrics by Sting.
Gideon Fletcher, a sailor, returns home from sea to discover the ship-building life he left behind in chaos. The yard is closing and no one knows what will come next. With the engine fired and pistons in motion, picket lines are drawn as foreman Jackie (Jimmy Nail) and his wife Peggy fight to hold their community together in the face of the gathering storm.
Music and lyrics by Sting. Directed by Lorne Campbell. Northern Stage in association with Karl Sydow and Kathryn Schenker.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Last Ship are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
