Life Stories

Life magazine is a cultural institution, and its journalists have the power to lift their subjects to fame with a stroke of the pen or click of a lens. The play The Cover of Life follows a female reporter who travels to a small town to chronicle the lives of three military brides and their mother-in-law who live together during World War II. She learns that despite outward appearances, life isn't much different for her than for them. Catch The Cover of Life in its last weekend onstage at the Granville Arts Center, 300 N. Fifth St. in downtown Garland. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday. Admission is $19 to $20. Call 972-485-8884 or visit
