About this show

Beyond the Horizon is a harrowing, heart-wrenching domestic tragedy, set on a farm in Massachusetts where 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 neighbor 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 dreamt of. It is a decision with irrevocable and tragic consequences.
