“Today is a day to forget everything, an unforgettable celebration of forgetting and it has to be a party”

Club Bonenkai is the feverish love child of The Letter Room, both an explosive show and a speakeasy cabaret party, full of hot and heavy live music.

A Bonenkai is a Japanese drinking tradition dedicated to the art of forgetting: forgetting your life, your fears, the state of the world right now, forgetting whatever you wish.

The Letter Room will be performing original material, twisting classic covers and throwing the party to end all parties.

Part of INCOMING Festival, a co-production between A Younger Theatre and New Diorama Theatre. 


The Letter Room is a theatre company in the North East telling stories full of raucous live music. It is committed to creating fearless, boundary ­breaking music theatre that captures the energy of a night out and the intimacy of live performance.
