Ain’t No Mo’, The Public Theater, LuEsther Hall

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.

“Electrifying. Thrilling. Devastating.” – The New York Times

“Explosive Playfulness with Focused Attack, Fierce Lament with Equally Fierce Celebration.” – New York Magazine

Ain’t No Mo’ features Jordan E. Cooper, Marchánt Davis, Jennean Farmer, Fedna Jacquet, Crystal Lucas-Perry, Ebony Marshall-Oliver, Simone Recasner, and Hermon Whaley Jr. It was written by Jordan E. Cooper and directed by Stevie Walker-Webb.

The show has been extended through May 5, 2019.
