Sometimes, we have to leave our own time and place to understand ourselves. Hand2Mouth Theatre and Portland Playhouse team up to stage a new adaptation of The Left Hand of Darkness, Ursula K. Le Guin’s 1969 gender-bending tale of love, jealousy, power and betrayal. Join envoy Genly Ai on a trek across the cold, isolated planet of Gethen – a place where human beings are neither female nor male and society is not defined by sexual difference.
