Assigned female at birth, Eugenia Falleni led most of his life as Harry Crawford: a tough-talking, whiskey-drinking ladies man. In 1920 Harry was charged with the murder of his first wife, Annie Birkett, and his ‘duplicitous’ identity as Harry – then perceived a ‘sexual perversion’ – became Australia’s headline news. Join us as we trace Harry’s life, from shocking events aboard a merchant vessel on the high seas, to the working houses of Sydney, and wonder whether or not Harry’s fate could have been any different.
