MoJo Fest 2017
The Jo Howarth Noonan Foundation for the Performing Arts is a new non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and celebrating women theater artists over the age of forty.

Jo Howarth, a respected and beloved actor in Atlanta, sadly and unexpectedly passed away in 2015. In her 20s, Jo had a successful acting career, which she put on hold to raise her children. When she returned to acting, Jo found a surprising creative renaissance - at a stage of life when most female actors are ushered into involuntary retirement.

The Foundation that now bears her name will be working to create more opportunities for women to remain vital forces in theater, bringing their talent, experience, and wisdom to audiences and to theater companies across the US. The focus will be commissioning new works with substantial roles for older women, but the Foundation also will be hosting events to facilitate networking as well as career and artistic development in the spirit of Jo's own journey.

The inaugural MoJo Fest will begin its celebration of "women of a certain age" by showcasing five new commissions, ten-minute plays written by Suehyla El-Attar, Topher Payne, Sherry Paulson, Penny Mickelbury and Pamela Turner, followed by a panel discussion with successful women directors, playwrights, and arts activists, featuring Elisa Carlson, Karen Howell, Shannon Eubanks, and Brenda Porter.

After a networking and idea-sharing dinner catered by Affairs to Remember, this year's festival will conclude with a reading of a new play by Margaret Baldwin.
