Mollyville Modern Radio Drama
About This Show
Show Info: Embrace your inner expatriate and come away to this new wild west where we live free in our off-grid paradise commune nestled in the green valley of a mountain range jutting out of the sea. No rules. Plenty of consequences. About the place, Mollyville... Rich with cutting-edge technology and abundant in natural resources, Mollyville thrives as a self-policing, paradise community with beaches, cliffs, exotic forests and a system of unknowably vast subterranean caverns that extend beyond sight. Social media is a construct of the past. No emails. No smart phones. No telephones. It's a whole new world separated from ours by distance, exclusion from world maps, and self-reliance. Mollyville is completely off-the-grid. The tenet in mollyville is “Nothing living shall go without love, companionship or care—not a snake, not a tree, not a house—not ever.” It is a covenant all residents have agreed to uphold on a personal level at all times. Mollyvillian culture is unique in the way that there’s no formal law enforcement, but rather an integrity-based peacekeeping by way of calling for ‘a recognizing’ when it’s deemed by influential members of the community that the peace and/or safety of Mollyville is threatened. In this instance, a fluctuating, self-assigned faction of residents take on roles of marauders to exact (a sometimes brutal) satisfaction, making a demand of retribution on behalf of the perceived victims or the community at large, and redistributing their wealth to those who are esteemed to be the most deserving under the circumstances, which sometimes but not always results in the deaths of the targets—though, this happens only in the most extreme cases of offense to the community. Freedom is recognized as one of many inalienable rights and the culture dictates residents give each other a wide berth, tolerating all but some transgressions in the name of keeping the peace. About the story… Bjørn Olsen, a healing psychopath in the golden years of self-recovery, struggles to maintain his cool in the idyllic seaside commune of Mollyville. Plagued by rotten adult children, a careless promiscuous wife, and a vindictive ex-girlfriend, Bjørn finds himself struggling against his dark side to stay in the light. Infuriated by his blackmailing son and fueled by his own jealousy, he hunts his wife’s used-to-be best-friend at the local bar and makes the terrible mistake of approaching her. He had no idea she’d become so bitter. Shou.
