The playwright’s first full-length drama and winner of the Pulitzer Prize (1920) concerns two brothers in love with the same woman. Robert Mayo, who had dreamed of adventure "beyond the horizon," remains behind and weds the lady in question, while his brother, Andrew, goes to sea. In the end, embittered and dying, Robert dreams of the escape that lies "beyond the horizon."
