A poignant and timely short by Sydney-based filmmaker Sunday Emerson Gullifer. Featuring a beautiful performance by Matilda Ridgway, “Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow” follows a working theatre actor who starts to question her calling when she plays Lady Macduff in an increasingly violent production of Macbeth. The film’s epigraph comes from a piece in The Guardian on the ‘boys club’ of theatre where Ridgway reflects on an incisive remark she made during a Q&A in Canberra for Hamlet:
“Well, as a female actress you get really good at crying and taking your clothes off—sort of like how the male actors get really good at sword fighting and having all the dialogue.”
