Making it onto the cover of Life magazine may not be quite as prestigious as making it onto the cover of New Times, but no one has written a play about that yet, so check out The Pewter Plough Playhouse’s production of The Cover of Life, by R.T. Robinson, now through May 18. Cover of Life is a family drama about three brides who come to live in the home of three brothers after they go off to war, and a reporter from Life magazine decides to do a cover story on them.  The Pewter Plough Playhouse is located at 824 Main St. in Cambria and can be reached at 927-3877.
