From the producers: "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 masterful new work explores the value of black lives in a country hurtling away from the promise of a black president.
Auther Jordan E. Cooper's work has been produced at 48 Hours in Harlem, The Fire This Time Festival, and New York Theatre Workshop’s Summer Residency at Dartmouth. His short film "americanmother" won the Audience Choice award at Dallas Video Fest. "Ain't No Mo'" makes its official Off-Broadway debut following an initial run in the Public Studio last year.
Cooper leads a cast that includes Marchánt Davis, Fedna Jacquet, Crystal Lucas-Perry, Ebony Marshall-Oliver, Simone Recasner, and Hermon Whaley Jr. Stevie Walker-Webb directs.
