Mollie Craven- Benji


WHAT WAS YOUR BEST / WORST TIME WITH WHISKEY?

My senior year of college, all the senior acting majors decided to get a little *ahem* relaxed for our final theatre school meeting of the year. Before I ever even went to the pre-gaming party, I PRE-pre-gamed at home (at noon. On a Tuesday.) with maaaaaaybe a few too many shots of CHEAP whiskey. I then went to the school meeting, jolly as can be. Little did I know (because I had never had whiskey before) that whiskey is more deadly than arsenic, and I spent the entire rest of the day and night, including my FOUR HOUR SCHOOL REHEARSAL, throwing up over a dozen times. It. was. awful. I haven't touched the stuff since, and I don't think I ever possibly could again.


WHAT WAS THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS DREAM YOU HAD FOR YOUR LIFE?

I guess my dream to be on Broadway, though perhaps a #commondream among actors, is still pretty outrageous. I'm still dreaming that dream and wishing upon stars and all that jazz for that dream to come true. First stop: Williamsburg. Next stop: THE BIG WHITE WAY.


WHEN LOOKING FOR A PLACE TO LIVE AFTER THE APOCALYPSE, WHAT MAKES WILLIAMSBURG SO APPEALING?

Ahhhh, WIlliamsburg. Where you can only live if you're a professional hipster, or the have the benefit of the most magical words: rent control. It's trendy, it's bendy, it's Fendi.

WILLIAMSBURG, BROOKLYN:
A LAND WHERE THE WHISKEY IS ALWAYS FLOWING. 
HERE PEOPLE LIVE IN BLISSFUL PEACE UNDER THE TENURE OF WHISKEY PANTS,
THEIR BELOVED MAYOR.

SINCE "THE EVENT",
THEY'VE FOUND IT'S DANGEROUS TO DREAM,
LEAVING MOST TO PREFER TO LIVE THEIR DAYS IN A DRUNKEN STUPOR.

BUT NOW,
THEIR WAY OF LIFE IS THREATENED BY AN AMBITIOUS NEWCOMER
FROM THE OUTSIDE WORLD
WHO SEEKS
TO SOBER
THEIR PERPETUAL HANGOVER.

WILL HE RUIN EVERYTHING?
OR WILL HE DISCOVER THAT
IN WILLIAMSBURG,
IT'S EASIER TO DRINK?
