From a play: Heaven Can Wait by Harry Segall

Keywords: Romantic Comedy, Bible

An up-and-coming comedian gone before his time is sent back to Earth in the body of a curmudgeonly businessman.

ABSTRACT
Remake of Heaven Can Wait (1978). Fledgling young comedian Lance Barton dies in a freak bus accident; a conversation at the gates of Heaven reveals that he passed fifty years before his time, compelling God's men to send his spirit back to the mortal world in the body of disagreeable businessman Charles Wellington. Lance -- Charles, rather -- must now work to keep himself alive until he can return to his old body as he discovers a plot by Charles' wife to kill him while courting romance with an attractive activist.
