2021 FESTIVAL: BEYOND THE HORIZON, a tao house film

America’s first tragic play is brought to life in this filmed adaptation of Beyond the Horizon by Eugene O’Neill. The production was filmed at Tao House, the Eugene O’Neill National Historic Site, and the surrounding hills of the Las Trampas Wilderness in Northern California.

The Eugene O’Neill Festival has been a huge success with a combination of live and virtual events. The festival centerpiece is still to come; this filmed production of O’Neill’s first great drama Beyond the Horizon.

Adapted/Directed/Edited by Eric Fraisher Hayes, available to view starting Oct 16, 2021, $20 per household for unlimited views. MORE HERE…
