AIN’T NO MO’ is a vibrant satirical odyssey portraying the great exodus of Black Americans out of a country plagued with injustice.

In a kaleidoscope of scenes of the moments before, during, and after this outrageous departure, Jordan E. Cooper’s extraordinary new work explores the value of black lives in a country hurtling away from the promise of a black president.

Stevie Walker-Webb directs this wildly imaginative and emotionally charged new play.
