HTP's managing di- rector, James FitzSimmons, who has worked with Coxe, said, "I thought of Helen imme- COXE diately. She is incredibly funny and will be able to provide Kristen with some good inspiration. Besides, she does the best Shelly Winters im- pression I have ever witnessed." The rest of the cast includes Jimmy Holder, who appeared on Broadway in "The Mineola Twins" with Swoosie Kurtz, and in HTP's first New Works/New Voices "Two On the Aisle, Three In a Van;" and Christine Fall, who has worked off-Broadway and re- gionally.

Those who are attending the had seen a version of "Stones" at HTP's second annual High School The- ater Festival, where she and FitzSimmons were adjudica- HOLDER tors. Although FitzSimmon's was originally slated to direct "Stones," his schedule, which calls for managing five perform- ances in four weeks, was too crowded and he and HTP artistic director Lisa Pelikan tapped De- laney instead. "Shelley was a natural choice to direct "Stones;" besides being an amazing actress, she is a smart new director. We both directed new plays for a festival in New York City last year and I was very impressed with her work," FitzSimmons said.
