Ever fancy yourself a playwright, a detective, a source of great humor and imagination?  For the big trifecta of entertaining hits, plan to mosey on down one of New Haven's prettiest areas, Wooster Street, to number 165, where the Consiglio family have been preparing great Italian feasts for over seventy-five years.

Master of ceremonies, actor, writer, producer and director Michael Sayers is at it again, creating fun and excitement with you as the stars as he presents his unique improvisational murder mystery shows " Now You Dunnit !!" on a series of summer evenings on  Friday, July 18 at 7 p.m., Sunday, July 27 at 5 p.m., Saturday, August 9 at 7 p.m., Friday, August 22 at 7 p.m. and Friday, September 19 at 7 p.m.

With Michael Sayers at the helm, anything can happen and usually does.  He comes to the stage with a talented troupe of actors who are ready, willing and most able to think on their feet.  You, the audience, are called upon to provide the plot, the victim, the murderer and the who, what and where.  Your suggestions frame the action so you feel a part of the story from the first word.  The back ground, the interrogation and the investigation are all figments of your imagination and the wilder the better.

Before you put on your sleuthing gear, you are invited to partake of a delicious three course meal of your choosing.  With appetizers like fried calamari or eggplant napoleon, entrees like sole provencal or penne vodka and desserts like Gelato or Godiva Tiramisu, you will have a hard time deciding between all the delicious choices.

Audience participation is at the heart of Consiglio's menu.  Be prepared to sing and play games and search for clues to a murder with Chester Hadlyme as the chief detective.  Detective Hadlyme needs your help, to weigh and balance all the clues dropped for you to retrieve and solve. As if that isn't enough, there will also be hysterical table games and "sing a longs."

For tickets ($55), to "Now You've Dunnit !!," call Consiglio's Restaurant, 165 Wooster Street, New Haven at 203-865-4489 or online at  Tax, tip and drinks are not included.  Doors open one hour before showtime.

Join the great team of Sayers and Consiglio's for delicious and dandy entertainment! Start thinking now of how you can stump the cast with wacky story lines and far out murder clues.  The fun begins this Friday night at 7!  Be there!
