Set in Nazi-occupied Poland in 1943, The Power of Two is the story of a Polish Catholic housewife and a Jewish woman from the Warsaw Ghetto who are forced to confront their prejudice and fear to help each other survive.
P.H. Lin’s work has garnered many theatrical awards and her plays have been produced throughout the country. One of her recent plays, Zelda at the Oasis, about F. Scott Fitzgerald’s troubled wife, has been published by Samuel French and enjoyed a fourteen-week run off-Broadway, earning many rave reviews of which the following is typical:
