Following their sell-out run of In the Heights in 2018, RicNic London return to the Stockwell Playhouse this summer with Jonathon Larson’s legendary rock musical Rent.

Drawing inspiration from the Puccini opera La Boheme, Rent is a riveting celebration of friendship, community, creativity and otherness. Exploring the lives and loves of a group of struggling artists in New York City, this complex but uplifting show reminds us to 'measure our lives in love' and live each day to the fullest. 

Packed full of much-loved songs, from the extraordinary ‘Seasons of Love’ to ‘Take Me or Leave Me’ and ‘La Vie Boheme’, Rent is a moving, memorable masterpiece that will be brought to life as never before by RicNic London this summer. Don’t miss it!
