This rarely produced gem by America’s greatest playwright, Eugene O’Neill will be Fresh Coat Theatre’s second production after The Lion In Winter. Beyond the Horizon launched O’Neill’s career as his first full length play to be produced.  It was also the second play to receive a Pulitzer Prize for Drama. This production is directed by Evan Jones.

The introspective and sensitive Robert falls in love with Ruth, who is engaged to his brother, Andrew; she marries Robert, and Andrew goes to sea. Ruth later discovers that her marriage has been a mistake and that she is still in love with Andrew. Three years pass, and Robert, sick and disillusioned, fails to make a go of the farm. Andrew returns, but brings with him only disappointment 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.
