About the Play:

Winner of the 1920 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

Beyond the Horizon is a full-length drama by Nobel Laureate and four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Eugene O'Neill. One of the most popular O'Neill plays, it explores what happens when two men love the same woman and the compromises each will make to have her. .

Beyond the Horizon is a harrowing, heart-wrenching domestic tragedy, set on a farm in Massachusetts at the beginning of the twentieth century. Two brothers, Robert, a dreamer and poet who longs to go to sea and seek the promise that lies beyond the horizon, and Andrew, a more practical man, whose desire extends no farther than the family farm, find themselves in love with their neighbour, Ruth. Just as Robert is about to depart, however, it becomes clear that Ruth loves him and not Andrew. So Robert stays at home to run the farm — a job for which he is entirely unsuited — and Andrew takes his place on the sailing ship to discover lands he never dreamed of. It is a decision with irrevocable and tragic consequences. Three years pass, and Robert, sick and disillusioned, fails to make a go of the farm. Andrew returns, but brings with him only disillusion to Ruth and Robert. The latter, who yearns for the romance his brother is supposed to have enjoyed, sees in Andrew only an unimaginative materialist. It is a powerful, timeless work by America's greatest playwright.

Beyond the Horizon is best known as the play that launched the career of Eugene O'Neill. His first full-length play, it was his first commercial success on Broadway, coming after a series of one-acts mounted in Greenwich Village, and the first of his four Pulitzer prizes.

Cast: 4 women, 6 men
