Set in New York City's gritty East Village, the revolutionary rock opera Rent tells the story of a group of bohemians struggling to live and pay their rent.

"Measuring their lives in love," these starving artists strive for success and acceptance while enduring the obstacles of poverty, illness and the AIDS epidemic.

Rent is based on Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer and Tony Award winning musical, one of the longest running shows on Broadway. The raw and riveting musical stars Rosario Dawson, Taye Diggs, Wilson Jermaine Heredia, Jesse L. Martin, Idina Menzel, Adam Pascal, Anthony Rapp and Tracie Thoms and is directed by Chris Columbus.

SCREEN/PRINT is a collaborative project between QFT and the Naughton Gallery, through which illustrators are commissioned to create new posters for a range of films. Rent has been specially programmed for LGBT+ History Month in collaboration with PRISM, the Queen's University LGBT+ Staff Network, and includes a free poster for all attendees, designed by Belfast-based illustrator Jamie Beard.
