Tyneside music legend Sting is set to star in a drama he co-created which is “rooted” in the city in which he grew up.

The audio play ‘I Must Have Loved You’ follows the story of Jess Doyle, a young singer compelled to leave Newcastle in search of success.

Sting plays Vince, her overbearing blues-singing father, in the drama, which will also feature his “evocative” music.

He co-created the drama with Michael Chaplin, who worked on ITV’s Wild At Heart.

Chaplin said: “It’s been a deeply rewarding pleasure to work with Sting in fashioning a song-strewn story about a musical family in Newcastle.

“The play travels as far as the Grand Canyon, but is rooted in the city where we grew up and which remains an inspiration.”
