Event description

Description

Join us for champagne and canapés as we celebrate Australia’s crime-writing talent at Sisters in Crime’s 24th Scarlet Stiletto Awareds.

This year, 187 entries vied for glory, but only 26 stories were shortlisted for the 13 awards.

Before presenting the awards (and the coveted Scarlet Stiletto trophy), Sigrid Thornton will discuss her ‘life in crime’ (and much more) with crime author and performer Jane Clifton.

Sigrid Thornton’s criminal acting career stretches back to Homicide and Division 4 (1975), Prisoner (1979–80), Whipping Boy (1996), SeaChange (1998–2000), Underbelly: The Golden Mile (2010) and The Code (2016). She is currently one of the main cast in Wentworth (2016–), playing Sonia Stevens.

Jane Clifton – author, actress, singer and registered civil celebrant – is still most famous for her role as bank robber Margo Gaffney in Prisoner (1980–84), the show on which Wentworth is based. Ironically, Prisoner was one of the last shows that did not pay its cast for repeats. Jane has finished her fifth novel, which is not crime, but she promises she will be returning to a life of crime with Flash, a sequel to Flush.

Tickets: $40 (champagne and canapés) Note: vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs catered for.
Doors open at 5.45pm.
Men or ‘brothers-in-law’ welcome.
This venue is accessible by escalator, lift and stairs.

Bookings are essential and close midnight Wednesday 18 November.

Please note that ticket purchases to this event will incur an EventBrite processing fee at checkout.
