Like every year, META 2017 swept Delhi thespians and theatre-lovers off their feet with a vast canvas of plays touching on varied and complex themes, regions and languages. Over 300 entries, representing 12 states across the nation, were received by the META Secretariat.
In an innovative step forward, the Secretariat introduced an Advisory Committee which ran selections in different regions of the country.
The selection process was fully digital! Applicants filled in all information online on the META website and uploaded plays on the META YouTube channel which was a private link for the Committee.
META 2017 celebrated the works of over 160 artistes in an intense week-long romance of the stage showcasing 10 shortlisted plays nominated across 13 award categories representing 5 languages - Bengali, English, Hindi, Malayalam and Rajasthani. The jury watched each play with meticulous attention, missing nothing.
