Beyond the Horizon archive'The hushed twilight of a day in May is just beginning. The horizon hills are still rimmed by a faint line of flame, and the sky above them glows with the crimson flush of the sunset. Robert Mayo is discovered sitting on the fence. He is a tall, slender young man of twenty-three. There is a touch of the poet about him expressed in his wide forehead and wide, dark eyes.' Robert is about to start a new life across the ocean, whilst brother Andy is looking forward to settling on the family farm. But the realisation that they love the same woman results in them swapping lives as fate takes hold of the Mayo family. A powerful story of youthful dreams crashing into reality and the human spirit being tested almost beyond endurance, this is the play that formulated Eugene O'Neill's tragic vision of America. Running time: 2hrs 40mins (inc. interval)
