Though Dawn Powell is known primarily as a novelist, she had originally intended to write for the theater. Her play Big Night was produced by the Group Theatre in 1933, and Jig Saw: A Comedy had a short run in 1934. Powell also wrote a musical comedy and scripts for radio, television, and film and published essays, reviews, and short stories in distinguished national magazines. A number of her short stories were collected in Sunday, Monday, and Always (1952).
