Beyond the Horizon
Beyond the Horizon tells the story of brothers Andrew (a farmer) and Robert (a poet). While Andrew plans to inherit the family farm and stay on the land, Robert - now recovered from a lengthy illness - will set sail with his uncle, and venture throughout the world. But before he leaves, Robert discovers his love for the girl-next-door, Ruth Atkins, the woman the families thought would marry Andrew. In newfound romance, Robert stays to farm, while Andrew leaves to the sea. Three years later, Andrew returns to a farm in ruins, his father dead, and Ruth bitter. While fully intending to fix his family, Andrew is called away and returns five years later to a farm even more desolate and in despair. Written in classic Eugene O’Neill style, Beyond the Horizon explores the bonds of brotherhood in the face of all adversity - even until the very end.
