The Second Show of Our 38th Season

The Cover Of Life

By R.T. Robinson

A Story of Love, War and Family

Apr 11 - May 18, 2014

As its second production of the 2014 Season, The Pewter Plough Playhouse presents The Cover of Life by R. T. Robinson, a heartwarming family drama set during World War II. In 1943 when three brothers go off to war, their brides come to live in their home and must adjust to life in an extended family in a small town in Louisiana. The story of this family reaches the desk of Life Magazine, and a reporter is sent to do a cover story about them. The play captures the need for family, the stress of being a war bride, the excitement of learning you are important enough for a Life Magazine story, and the coming to terms with what life brings.

It finds humor, anxiety, sorrow and empathy in the face of war and the strength of women during that time. The director is Sandy Bosworth; the cast features Nikki Barnes, Michael Dexter, Angela Hutt, MJ. Johnson, Janice Peters, Sharyn Young and Toni Young.
