I'm currently performing at Adelaide Fringe and the other night I came back to my car to find the window smashed in. A thief, clearly enticed by the flashiness of my 1995 toyota corolla, had broken in. All he or she stole was a big bit of fake fur fabric that I use to make a beard in my show (perhaps to fashion a disguise to flee the crime scene with) and my little case containing my ventriloquist mask.

I like to hope that somewhere out there is a junkie who is going to take my beloved mask and turn over a new leaf. They'll give up all the heroin and thievery and become the best ventriloquist ever.

The cops came round yesterday morning and finger printed my car. I felt like I was in a really low budget episode of CSI. Unfortunately the consensus is that they are unlikely to find anything.
So, RIP Vent Mask, missing presumed dead. http://youtu.be/mMtWc_Evh5E

That's a real shame Smile
I totally feel for you.. I had a main character stolen from backstage at a comedy club WHILE I was performing..
It makes you feel so violated to have a piece of your livelihood taken so abruptly.
I hope you get it back Sarah.. Or at least get a replacement soon. In my case - I was without that character for a few months waiting to get the time to make a replacement.. It really sucks though.
Hope the rest of your run is a more positive experience.

Hey pretty CatLady...I'd like to give you a new one... if you pay for shipping Smile

it's not as nice as the one you lost... buy for something free, it should be cool enough. Smile

Wanlu, that is so, so kind of you. Are you sure that would be ok? I don't want you to lose money. Perhaps I can pay for the cost price of the mask as well as shipping. Please send me an email at info@sarahjones.com.au

Yes, Wanlu, very kind offer. They actually fingerprinted your car? Every place I've lived the cops won't send an actual crimes scene unit around for a relatively petty theft. There would have to be blood, a dead body, rape, or other assault for them to make the effort. Sorry about your loss and glad to here about a municipality that cares enough or is bored enough to make that effort.

No big deal my friends... It was an extra mask just collecting dust (so to speak) Smile

CatLady paid for shipping and handling so no extra cost on my part Smile
