The Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards in its 12th year has created a benchmark for applauding the finest in theatre. It was instituted by the Mahindra Group with the objective of becoming a significant platform for celebrating this art. META recognises theatre`s varied elements like play-writing, set, costume and light designing, direction and performance. Over the years, META has succeeded in setting a stage that represents the diverse interpretations of this art form as understood in various regions of the country. The most pressing social issues have been brought to life and given a new perspective by highly acclaimed theatre groups that have participated in the festival. The Mahindra Group, through META, aims to increase awareness and appreciation of Indian theatre, making it the only national arena for recognising and rewarding the industry`s best performing theatres and theatre makers.
The 12th Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards will be held from 4th to 10th March 2017 in New Delhi. 10 nominated theatre productions will be staged at one of the following auditoriums: Kamani Auditorium, Sri Ram Centre & Little Theatre Group (LTG).
