What You'll Get
Life is full of unanswered questions, such as who really built the pyramids, where swiss cheese gets its holes from, and what the J in Michael J. Fox stands for. Get to the bottom of a solvable mystery with today's Groupon: for $30, you get one ticket to dinner and a brand-new whodunit performance by The Murder Mystery Company at Sycamore Hills Golf Club in Macomb (a $60 value).
Dinner guests find themselves playing detective during an evening of mock murder and faux fatalities unfolding over a four-course meal. The comic mystery begins with a murder, with a detective arriving on the scene to locate the perpetrator in the audience. Each table will work together to solve the mystery, using their sly sleuthing skills and heretofore untested telepathic abilities to sort out clues. In between a house-salad overture and the "thrilling conclusion" dessert epilogue, guests investigate a lip-smacking series of hand-made pasta followed by sycamore chicken, lightly-breaded, baked, and topped with a white wine- and artichoke-based sauce. More twists and turns emerge throughout the evening, as sated stomachs fuel the brainpower needed to finally solve the mystery, leaving waiters to store any unused clues and soiled silverware in a combination dishwasher-shredder.
Though drinks are not included with this Groupon, drink specials are available during the show. Lap up libations while scanning the room for guilty eyes and hairpieces preparing to flee at any moment. Arriving 30 minutes before the show is recommended.

About The Murder Mystery Company
It's not every day that a dinner with friends risks a murder accusation. That's a good possibility for the guests of The Murder Mystery Company, who find themselves in the middle of a investigation for which any one of them could stand accused by a hapless detective. During each interactive dinner, the company's troupe of professional improv actors ignites the dining room with entertaining outbursts and hilarious one-liners in an effort to divulge clues and redirect guilt. Meanwhile, guests work together to sniff out the real culprit, which is definitely not the school janitor in a mask. Birthday parties, bachelorette celebrations, and corporate events can also get in on the interactive action by scheduling a private murder-mystery dinner.
