Written by Teresa Deevy, Temporal Powers tells the moving story of a great love straining under the weight of conflicting passions. Desperate and destitute, Michael and Min Powers take refuge for the night in a crumbling ruin. Buried within the walls could be the answer to their prayers--money for a fresh start--if only they could agree to use it. What follows is a fierce moral struggle that no one can win. Deevy's explosive drama won First Prize in the new play competition held by the Abbey Theatre in 1932.
