The audio drama, which incorpoprates music from the album, features Iwan Rheon and Amaka Okafor as the two leads, as well as Bill Nighy and Rufus Sewell. 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.”
