Beyond the Horizon was Nobel-prize winning playwright Eugene O’Neill’s first full-length play, for which he won the first of his four Pulitzer prizes. Set on a farm in Massachusetts at the beginning of the twentieth century, this riveting drama pits brother against brother for the heart of one woman. It is a powerful, timeless work by America’s greatest playwright, and the father of contemporary American playwriting.
