Set timer for user input

I am trying to design a task, where stimulus is presented on screen, when user is ready, they press any key then shows a window which asks user to type their input. I want to set a timer of 90 seconds for input and then presenting another stimulus after time out.
Here is the code:

from __future__ import absolute_import, division
from psychopy import locale_setup, gui, visual, core, data, event, logging, sound

import numpy as np  # whole numpy lib is available, prepend 'np.'
from numpy import (sin, cos, tan, log, log10, pi, average,
                   sqrt, std, deg2rad, rad2deg, linspace, asarray)
from numpy.random import random, randint, normal, shuffle
import os  # handy system and path functions
import sys  # to get file system encoding

from random import shuffle

#from pytribe import EyeTribe
from re import match

PATH =''Path for stimulus pictures'
OUTPATH = '{0:s}\\results\\'.format(PATH)  # output path for storing the results
sans = ['Gill Sans MT', 'Arial','Helvetica','Verdana'] #use the first font found on this list
# Store info about the experiment session
expName = 'Gleiche Eigenschaften' pt
expInfo = {'participant':'', 'gender (m/f)':'', 'age':''}

dlg = gui.DlgFromDict(dictionary=expInfo, title=expName)
if dlg.OK == False:
    core.quit()  # user pressed cancel
expInfo['date'] = data.getDateStr()  # add a simple timestamp
expInfo['expName'] = expName

output_file = OUTPATH + expInfo['expName'] + '_{0:02d}.txt'.format(int(expInfo['participant']))
if os.path.isfile(output_file):
    print 'Error: File already exists. Restart experiment and choose subject number which is not used yet.'

myWin = visual.Window(size =[1366,768], monitor= "testmonitor",color = (230,230,230),allowGUI = False, fullscr = True,
                        winType='pyglet',colorSpace = 'rgb255', units = 'deg')
clock = core.Clock()
#a routine to save responses to file anytime we want to
def saveThisResponse(captured_string):
    outfile = OUTPATH + expInfo['expName'] + '_{0:02d}.txt'.format(int(expInfo['participant']))
    f = open(outfile, 'a') #open our results file in append mode so we don't overwrite anything
    f.write(captured_string) #write the string they typed
    f.write('; typed at %s' %time.asctime()) #write a timestamp (very course)
    f.write('\n') # write a line ending
    f.close() #close and "save" the output file
#a routine to update the string on the screen as the participant types

for file in files:
    stimulus = visual.ImageStim(myWin, image='{0:s}/stim_pics/{1:s}'.format(PATH,file))

    ResponseInstuction = visual.TextStim(myWin, 
                        units='norm',height = 0.1,
                        pos=(0, 0.5), text='Type response now ... (escape to quit)',

Please help!!!
