He wrote a play called “Rock `n’ Roll,” and now Tom Stoppard is returning to the topic with a radio drama inspired by Pink Floyd.
The play marks the 40th anniversary of the release of the band’s “The Dark Side of the Moon.”
The BBC said Thursday it is “a fantastical and psychedelic story based on themes from the seminal album.”
Pink Floyd formed in 1965 and soon became stars of London’s psychedelic scene. “The Dark Side of the Moon,” released in 1973, has sold more than 40 million copies.
