This is the first radio dramatisation of Ursula Le Guin's novel which is as groundbreaking in its approach to gender as when it was first published over 45 years ago. Genly Ai has arrived from Earth onto the planet Gethen, a world in which humans are ambigendered - everyone can be a mother and everyone can be a father. In coming to terms with their otherness - and also their sameness - Genly must let go of everything he understood about his own identity.
Director: Allegra McIlroy.
