Last fall, the World Premiere of Radha Blank's play Seed garnered praise from audiences and critics alike. Awards and Fellowships include NYFA's Artists Fellowship, Nickelodeon's Writers Fellowship, The Public Theater's Emerging Writers Group Fellowship, The National Endowment for the Arts New Play Development Award (for Seed) and the 2011 Helen Merrill Award for Playwriting. Ms. Blank's work has been developed and/or presented by The Classical Theater of Harlem, Arena Stage, The City Parks Foundation, Dixon Place, Here, The Public Theater, The Lark, Voice and Vision, Luna Stage, Hedgebrook, Penumbra Theater, The New Black Fest and several seasons of The NYC Hip Hop Theater Festival. Plays include American Schemes, Seed, HappyFlowerNail, nannyland, Casket Sharp, and Kenya for which The Village Voice called "riveting immediately alive." For 2012, commissions include 32 To Base, a play about immigrant cabbies in the South Bronx for EPIC Theater Ensemble and a new play about restaurant workers for NYU Tisch's Graduate Acting Program. Her latest play, Confections, explores how a daughter's passion for baking masks a mother's dark secret in a small North Carolina town.
