A young woman and a young man go on a journey of discovery.  In this whimsical tale by the master of witty wordplay, Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead) joins up with the chief purveyors of Mood Rock, the legendary Pink Floyd, whose album Darkside of the Moon stayed on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart an astonishing 14 years, to create a fast and funny ride that will leave you guessing, laughing and listening in equal measures.  

Stoppard’s incredible tale is blended seemlessly with Pink Floyd’s Darkside of the Moon in this triumphant consideration of love, mortality, nature and puns.
