Murder with a slice of lime is on the menu this September as The Other Way Works’ critically-acclaimed Black Tonic takes up residence in Birmingham’s stunning Radisson Blu hotel.

The theatre thriller, set within the rooms of the Radisson,  offers a glimpse into the lives of the invisible workforce whose erratic shift patterns service our round-the-clock society. Guests are invited to unravel the story as they play detective amongst the bedrooms and corridors of the hotel.

Can love be bought for the price of a cocktail from the mini-bar though? Only you can figure out the truth behind this mystery.
