This season, Public Studio is giving audiences a chance to discover bold work from early-career playwrights. 

AIN’T NO MO’ is an 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 satire 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 from the fresh perspective of young playwright Jordan E. Cooper. 

Public Studio was founded with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and Time Warner Foundation. Continued support for Public Studio is provided by The Time Warner Foundation.

All orders subject to $5 per ticket service fee and $2 per ticket facility fee. Service fees are waived when you buy in person at the Box Office. All fees are waived for Public Theater Members and Partners. Title, director, actors, designers, prices, performance dates & times are subject to change.

The Public is theater of, by and for the people
