Inspired by Sting’s album, "The Soul Cages", "The Last Ship" tells the story of Gideon, a prodigal son returning home after 17 years at sea to find that the local shipyard his town was built around is closing and Meg, the love he left behind, has moved on. Tensions flare and picket lines are drawn as foreman Jackie White (Sting) rallies the workers to take over the shipyard and build one last ship. Completely reimagined since its Broadway debut in 2014, "The Last Ship" is a love story, a tale of family and friendship, and a passionate homage to the community Sting grew up in. This “thrilling and stirring musical" ("The Guardian") at The National Theatre in Washington, D.C. features a Tony-nominated original score by Sting including some of his best-loved songs “Island of Souls,” “All This Time,” and “When We Dance.”
