Rockland — “The Lobster Trap,” an original radio mystery play by Rockport playwright Jonathan Potter, will be presented Tuesday, April 8, during “Jo and Cheech’s Radio Hour” beginning 8 p.m. on WRFR-LP. The community station can be heard at 93.3 FM in Rockland, 99.3 FM in Camden and streaming live at WRFR.org.

“The Lobster Trap” is set during the Rockland Lobster Festival and follows Derek Steele, a hard-bitten Rockland detective, as he tries to solve the murder mystery of movie star Lucretia Mott. The play features a colorful cast of characters performed by Scott Anthony Smith, father and daughter team Richard and Marika Shyduroff, Ginger Wilson, Wilder Oakes and Potter himself.

This is the second original radio mystery to air on “Jo and Cheech’s Radio Hour.” Listeners can hear the first play, Jen Blood’s “The Stone House,” on the station’s website. The plays are recorded on site at WRFR with sound editing by Rachel Albury (a.k.a. DJ Cheech).
