Sting‘s latest project, the stage musical ‘The Last Ship,’ will premiere on Broadway in 2014.

ABC News Radio reports that the show, which is described by its producers as “a portrait of a group of people so bound together by passion and faith that they’ll stop at nothing to preserve the only life they’ve ever known,” will make its stage debut in Chicago, where it’s set to run from June 10 through July 13, 2014. After its Chicago run concludes, ‘The Last Ship’ will disembark for Broadway in the fall.

Partially based on memories of Sting’s childhood, the show’s story follows the adventures of a man named Gideon, who leaves his shipbuilding town, only to return 14 years later to find the economy a shambles and his childhood sweetheart engaged to someone else. “The memories at the heart of ‘The Last Ship’ have occupied my mind for most of my life,” explained Sting in a press release. “I was compelled to tell this story, and I’ve had the great fortune of collaborating with an enormously talented team.”

As we previously reported, ‘The Last Ship’ will also be available as an album on Sept. 24. Sting is scheduled to promote the record with a series of 10 shows, all benefiting the Public Theater in New York, between Sept. 25 and Oct. 9.
