Rick Arnold, The Head of the Department of Communication Arts & Sciences from Elmhurst College in illinois in America messaged Cyrus Trafford the following:

 

"An important part of my class is discussing the fact that although a playwright writes a play set in a particular time and place, and in fact writes it at a given time, however, when it is produced, the director of the production (whether film or live stage) may have a different view on the piece because the times, mores, and public point of view are different.

Presuming the goal of the production is to affect the audience in some fashion or at the very least make the story being told relevant to the audience, what about Minnesota Moon drew you to the script and why did you choose to create the film in the way you did?

We are planning to read the play, discuss it in terms of its original era, and the late 1970's when John wrote it. We will also then discuss the play in terms of its modern day relevance-whether it can be relevant to a modern audience.

Finally, I would like them to see your film and discuss what you see in the script and how you told the story that you found there. Your input would be most valuable."
