Share this article


Sting has made a musical and it's coming to Dublin. The Last Ship, which was initially inspired by Sting's 1991 album The Soul Cages and his own childhood experiences, tells the story of a community amid the demise of the shipbuilding industry.

The production, which will star Jimmy Nail, has a TONY-nominated original score and lyrics composed by Sting. It will play a 4-week season in Newcastle before embarking on a major UK & Ireland Tour.

The Last Ship is described as a "personal, political and passionate new musical", and an "epic account of a family, a community and a great act of defiance."

The show is directed by Lorne Campbell, the artistic director of Northern Stage, with set design by the Tony Award-winning 59 Productions.

The Last Ship will run at the Bord Gais Energy Theatre from June 4th 2018 - June 9th.
