Floyd radio play gets teaser video
The BBC have released a trailer for Darkside, Sir Tom Stoppard’s radio play based on Pink Floyd classic album The Dark Side Of The Moon. View it below.
The video, made by Wallace And Gromit creators Aardman Animations, promotes the broadcasting of the hour-long “philosophical comedy” on Radio 2 on August 26.
Stoppard, a Floyd fan, set out to mark the album’s 40th anniversary with the play, which stars Bill Nighy and Rufus Sewell.
He recently said: “I found some time, sat down and listened to the album for the thousandth time, picked up from the beginning and kept going. This is, more or less, the first time anything like this has been done on radio.”
Guitarist David Gilmour says the script is “fascinating,” adding: “I can’t wait to hear it come to life with the great cast performing it, and our music woven into it.”
