The Last Ship

Synopsis/Cast/Creatives

The Last Ship
The Last Ship tells the story of a ship-building town and its people. Gideon Fletcher, a sailor, returns home from half-a-lifetime at 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 White and his wife Peggy fight to hold their community together in the face of the gathering storm. Sting's personal, political and passionate musical comes home to Newcastle, in an epic tale of community, hope and a great act of collective defiance.
Approximate runtime 122minutes.
