About Ain't No Mo':

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. Ain't No Mo' ​is a wildly imaginative and emotionally charged play.

Our Ain't No Mo' Review
