The Drama Group to Present ‘Heaven Can Wait’

CHICAGO HEIGHTS—(ENEWSPF)—November 19, 2015. The Drama Group is pleased to present the entertaining comedy/fantasy, ‘Heaven Can Wait’ directed by Chuck Kaffka.

‘Heaven Can Wait’ tells the story of boxer, Joe Pendleton, who crashes on the way to his next fight and is sent to the Hereafter….sixty years too soon! To make matters worse, before the matter can be rectified by heavenly supervisor Mr. Jordan, his body is cremated. Instead, Joe is given the body of the very wealthy Jonathan Farnsworth, who is about to be murdered by his wife. Joe, living as Farnsworth, tries to remake Farnsworth’s unworthy life and avoid his murderous wife, while resurrecting his boxing career and falling in love. The 1978 remake, ‘Heaven Can Wait,’ with Warren Beatty, James Mason, Julie Christie and Dyan Cannon was nominated for Academy Awards.
