Recorded at KPCA-FM (103.3), 'SELDOM SEEN, NEVER HEARD,' is an original radio play written by Maryland inmate Larry Bratt. For his relentless efforts to improve inmate life and reform the penitentiary system, Bratt has received accolades from social justice groups, prison associations, and government agencies, including the Maryland Attorney General's office. In 'SELDOM SEEN, NEVER HEARD,' a prisoner befriends two robins who have built a nest outside his cell window. Through them, the prisoner's spirit is renewed, providing him room to consider whether the real bars restraining him might, in fact, be those inside his own mind. The play taps the talents of eight actors from the P.R.P. troupe and will be directed remotely from Austin, Texas, via Skype, by P.R.P.'s post-production supervisor, John Biehl.
