Cooper was instrumental in the Cambridge Revels from 1975 to 1993, writing everything from scripts to program notes as well as articles about the Revels for external publications. She adapted one of her Revels’ short plays into a picture book titled The Magician’s Boy. She was a member of the Revels Advisory Council and a close friend of John Langstaff. In 2011 she published a biography of him titled, The Magic Maker: A Portrait of John Langstaff, Creator of the Christmas Revels.
Cooper was married to Nicholas Grant (1963-1983) and Hume Cronyn (1996-2003; his death). She lived in Cambridge for many years, where her children, Jonathan Roderick Howard Grant (b. 1966) and Katharine Mary Grant Glennon (b. 1967), were raised, and now lives in Marshfield.
