by Harry Segall
A classic comedy-fantasty to lift your spirits!
In an extreme case of mistaken identity from beyond the grave, Joe Pendleton gets another chance at life to pursue his dream in this heavenly comedy by Harry Segall.
As the play begins, Mr. Jordan checks in passengers to depart for the Hereafter. The process is interrupted by the arrival of Pendleton, a promising young prizefighter, who refuses to admit he is dead and insists they look up his "record.” The search reveals that Joe is not scheduled to arrive for another 60 years! To correct the wrong, there is an attempt to return Joe to his body. Unfortunately, he has no body to return to, since his manager has already had him cremated!
Hilarity, confusion and a little bit of romance ensue as Joe and Mr. Jordan's search for a new body and a second chance at life.
Inspiring the movie Here Comes Mr. Jordan and an adaptation starring Warren Beatty, Heaven Can Wait presented by The Masquers will be the perfect night out!
