After becoming immersed in various Books of the Dead for another CPT project a few years ago, Bobgan finally made a connection. People say that the moment of death is an awakening to life, he says. To me, that is what Our Town is really about. Its the closest thing we have had in the last century to an American Book of the Dead. Bobgan scrapped the small-town premise of the original and focused on a much bigger picture -- the plays dreamlike qualities. This script has accumulated a lot of dust, he says. This production shakes it off and allows people to see the play without all the baggage it has accumulated.
