This group of friends named themselves the Secaucus 7 when they were arrested ten years earlier in Secaucus, NJ, on their way to a war protest in Washington. Now they’re all at a weekend reunion at Mike and Katie’s house in New England. Maura has just broken up with Jerry, JT’s best friend; she’s known JT many years. She comes to the reunion alone. JT is a musician who drifts around, never has any money, borrows from his friends here and there. He’s decided to hitchhike to LA to take a real stab at his music. Maura is still fresh off her breakup; in fact, she was supposed to marry Jeff. The “single people” are sleeping in Mike and Katie’s living room. Maura is on the sofa. JT is on the floor in front of the sofa, and Frances is across the room on a cot.
