Esteemed actor Chris Cooper portrays Charlie Aiken in August: Osage County.
Born in Kansas City, Missouri, Cooper attended the University of Missouri
School of Drama and started his professional career on the New York Stage.
Cooper has appeared in over fifty films, and in 2003 he won an Oscar and a
Golden Globe for his portrayal of John Laroche in Adaptation. Cooper currently
lives in Massachusetts with his wife, actress and writer Marianne Leone.
Jared Bowen is WGBH’s Emmy Award-winning Executive Editor and Host for Arts.
His weekly television series Open Studio with Jared Bowen takes viewers inside the
creative process, offering a blend of profiles, performances, and contemporary exhibitions
by artists in Greater Boston, New England, and across the country.
August: Osage County tells the dark, hilarious and deeply touching story of the
strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman
who raised them. Letts' play made its Broadway debut in December 2007 after premiering
at Chicago's legendary Steppenwolf Theatre earlier that year.

What We Do
Plimoth Plantation, a bicultural museum, offers powerful personal encounters with history built on thorough research about the Wampanoag People and the Colonial English community in the 1600s. Our exhibits, programs, live interpreters, and historic settings encourage a new level of understanding about present-day issues affecting communities around the world.
The visitor experience is at the heart of our work. The setting, the staff and a compelling approach to history combine to provide a memorable visitor experience. We are successful when a satisfied visitor recommends us to family and friends.
