Ain't No Mo' had its world premiere at the Public Theater in 2019. The play stars and is written by Cooper, who becomes the youngest American playwright in Broadway history with this production. Blending sketch, satire, and avant garde theater, the play dares to ask the incendiary question, "What if the U.S. government offered Black Americans one-way plane tickets to Africa?"
