Setting from the playwright, just to get you in mood:
The time is early November, 1976. The Vietnam War has ended. Nixon resigned two years prior and Jimmy Carter has yet to be elected 39th President. The film ROCKY is released in the theaters. Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak establish a company they call Apple. Gasoline is 52 cents per gallon – the average rent in Minneapolis is $220 per month and the average annual salary is $16,600. Son of Sam begins his wave of terror in New York City; the United States Mint issues the first $2 bill. Cisco is king; Reese Witherspoon and Colin Farrell are born.
