The Well of Loneliness will go down in history as one of the world's first published novels to depict a lesbian relationship. 

After publication in 1928, it was banned for obscenity before going on to become an international best seller. 

It tells the story of Stephen Gordon, an Englishwoman from an upper-class family who is ostracised for falling in love with another woman, Mary Llewellyn. 

Groundbreaking in its day, Radclyffe Hall's novel ultimately makes a very clear plea in regards to homosexuality: 'Give us also the right to our existence'.  

In this exclusive production, Audible's breakout star Ell Potter (Winter Dark, Winter Rising) breathes new life into the classic novel.
