Crome Yellow

Adaptations

The story of Sir Hercules Lapith, who briefly turned Crome into a haven for dwarves, was later adapted as a 60-minute radio play by Philip Mackie. This was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 in 1986 and has been repeated since.[14]

In 2014, the novelist Julian Davies wrote Crow Mellow, which he described as closely based on Aldous Huxley's novel. Set in contemporary Australia, it updates the satire to cover the hyper-capitalist 21st century in which the sex is more overt and art too has become a commodity.[15]

Virginity, an American musical taking its start from Crome Yellow, has lyrics written by Germaine Shames, music and additional lyrics by Daniel M. Lincoln. In this the deaf Jenny is given the leading role.[16][17]
