  • Summary

  • Now in its fifth year, GNR8, is the successful collaboration between the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and Audible. 

    From the beginning, the collaboration has amplified the authentic human voice in front of and behind the microphone. This year, LAMDA students once again feature in four brand new audio dramas, written and directed for their voices by some of the industry’s most exciting creatives. Embracing a spectrum of genres from sci-fi to social drama and political allegory, and covering themes of the dangers of groupthink, motherhood, the commodification of ‘true-crime’, persecution of marginalised groups and the possibility of other realities, these four dramas dig deep into the ideas and issues that resonate strongly with our student cohort and the world at large.

  • Ep 1: The Deity and The Fly
    Nov 16 2023

    Maya, a music teacher, joins high-achieving St Xavier’s school, brimming with ideas. There’s an invasive insect in the region and the townspeople use a powerful tincture to protect themselves from being bitten. Rumours begin to spread about the new teacher, exacerbated by her refusal to use the repellant. As the townspeople attempt to break Maya’s will, she finds an unexpected ally in one of her students.

    “Did you actually just take a stranger’s baby? How do you know it’s even hers? This could be anyone’s baby.” 

    After years with no contact, Tessa turns up at her brother, Ashley’s house with a baby that isn’t hers. Convincing Ashley to help her find the baby’s real mother, Ashley starts to question Tessa’s story and whether there is a dark truth that she’s hiding from them all.
