Darkside: A Radio Play Inspired by Pink Floyd
Academy Award-winning playwright Tom Stoppard has written Darkside, a radio play incorporating the music of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon. A recording of the play will be released worldwide as a deluxe CD package on November 25. Darkside—which was commissioned by BBC Radio 2 in honor of the classic album’s 40th anniversary—was first broadcast on the network back in August.
The deluxe package resembles a hard-backed book and comes with a CD of the 54-minute play, which includes the majority of The Dark Side of the Moon. The package also features a 56-page booklet of the play’s script, as well as cover artwork by Hipgnosis designer Aubrey Powell.
Darkside can now be pre-ordered for $22.40.
