Mystery dinner theater entertains unrealized detective fantasies without the grueling hours, Styrofoam coffee cups or after-hours wrangling with Angela Lansbury. Write an excerpt to a new chapter with today's Groupon: for $46, you get two tickets to an interactive murder-mystery dinner-theater performance, including a four-course meal with coffee, water, and tea, from The Mystery Café of Indianapolis (up to a $93 value). Shows take place on Friday and Saturday nights at various locations in Indianapolis.

The Mystery Café delights audiences with an engaging dinner-show and four-course Italian dinner. Enter the dining hall and, if you like, undertake a fictional identity to interact with the professional cast. Upon finding their seats, diners become engrossed in a comedic play in which voluntary participants are given a line to read and a high-speed jetpack to escape with should they be found to be the murderer.

While sleuthing the situation in hopes of uncovering the fiend and earning the night's grand prize, put an end to rampaging hunger with a meal of four courses served after each act, comprising savory minestrone soup, tossed salad with italian vinaigrette, and a choice of lasagna, shells florentine, chicken parmigiana, or sausage cannelloni, followed by spumoni for dessert. To evoke an authentic feeling for dining detectives, each theatrical murder takes place at the Milano Inn, which dates to 1934 and hosts a wraparound mural depicting the Allied liberation of Italy during World War II, accomplished by innumerable troops and secretive squads of tough-talking private eyes.

The Mystery Café of Indianapolis

Started in Boston in 1990 and an Indianapolis staple since 1992, The Mystery Café delights audiences with an engaging dinner show and four-course Italian dinner. Guest sleuths enter the dining hall and have the option to undertake a fictional identity to interact with the cast of professional performers. Upon finding their seats, diners become engrossed in a comedic play in which voluntary participants receive a line to read and a high-speed jetpack to escape with should suspicion fall on them. While putting crime-fighting powers to the test in hopes of not only solving the mystery but also earning the night's grand prize, diners put an end to hunger with savory minestrone, a tossed salad, a choice of lasagna, shells florentine, chicken parmesan, or sausage cannelloni, and spumoni for dessert.
