Passion for the stage

LIVE ACTION

The long wait of theatre enthusiasts for good plays is now over as  Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards (META) is back with its eighth edition.   

Having become one of
the most coveted events for theatre groups and fans across India, META aims to encourage all forms of theatre and increase awareness and appreciation of Indian theatre.

With this aim, 10 plays have been shortlisted this year to be staged between March 3-9 at Kamani Auditorium and LTG auditorium. These include a number of regional plays such as The Old Man and The Sea in Malayalam, Miruvidushakam in Tamil and The Priestess in Manipuri.

Among these, there will also be multi-lingual plays such as Gasha in Hindi, Kashmiri and Urdu, Matte Eklavya in Kannada, Hindi and English and Savitri – Dancing In The Forest Of Death in Tamil and English.

But the highlight will remain plays like Fevicol (Hindi) which has proved its mettle in festivals before and So Many Socks (English), which is directed by Quasar Thakore Padamsee.
Ravi Dubey, Creative Director of META says, “We received 312 entries this year and it has been quite a challenge to shortlist the 10 plays that have made the cut this year and are outstanding in their own individual right.”
