The audio drama, which incorpoprates music from the album, features Olivier Award-winning actor Iwan Rheon and Amaka Okafor in the two leading roles, as well as Bill Nighy, Rufus Sewell and Adrian Scarborough.
Billed as a "fantastical and psychedelic" story, the hour-long piece celebrates the 40th anniversary release of the rock album. It is billed as a dramatic examination of the album's themes of "conflict, greed and madness" that "takes listeners on a journey through their imaginations."
The BBC reports that Stoppard had initially been approached to author a play based on the album in the early 1970's.
"I have read the script of Tom's radio play 'Dark Side' and found it fascinating. I can't wait to hear it come to life with the great cast performing it and our music woven into it. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate The Dark Side Of The Moon's 40 year anniversary," said Pink Floyd band member David Gilmour.
