This performance will take place at The Bradford Hotel

Interactive theatre meets mini-break as you play detective in the bedrooms & corridors of a real hotel.

Black Tonic offers a glimpse into the lives of the invisible workforce whose erratic shift patterns service our round-the-clock society. You are invited to unravel this original detective story, where even love can be bought for the price of a cocktail from the mini-bar.

Be our guest: check-in at the Hotel reception and journey along corridors and into bedrooms to piece together the clues of this mysterious and visceral thriller.

The Other Way Works creates playful theatre that immerses our audiences in the story.

“A dynamic young company that is successfully exploring the possibilities of what theatre can and might be.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“One of the leading UK companies exploring the frontiers of interactivity in theatre.” John McGrath, Director, National Theatre Wales
