Starter for Ten
Find the best Starter for Ten musical tickets at Bristol Old Vic, Bristol. Fingers on buzzers! Here's your Starter for Ten... What is eighteen-year-old Brian Jackson's proudest achievement to date? His A-level results. His idol? Kate Bush. His lifelong dream? To compete on legendary TV quiz show University Challenge. It's 1985 and, leaving Southend to start his first year at Bristol University, Brian soon discovers that falling in love and growing up take a lot more than general knowledge... Adapted from the hilarious novel by bestselling author David Nicholls and the popular 2006 film, Starter for Ten is a bright, big-hearted new musical. Featuring an irresistible original soundtrack inspired by the riotous student scene of the 80s, this coming-of-age comedy is about love, belonging and the all-important difference between knowledge and wisdom.
