The Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards (META), now in its 17th year, continues to applaud the finest in Indian theatre and set benchmarks for excellence. Instituted by the Mahindra Group with the objective of becoming a significant platform for theatre across regions, states and dialects in India, META recognizes all aspects of the stage including playwriting, set, costume and light design, direction and performance and awards the best in the entire stage spectrum. The last two years, as the world grappled with a pandemic, the show didn't stop for META and saw the META stage going virtual with magnificent productions showcased online for theatre-lovers and connoisseurs.

Finally now in 2022, the 17th edition of META will be a physical showcase of 4 award-winning plays from META 2020, the landmark 15th edition of META.

Over the years, META has given voice to diverse themes ranging from contemporary and pressing social issues, mythology, religion, gender, caste, politics, and classics, through the plays it has showcased.

META aims to increase awareness and appreciation of Indian theatre and is the only national arena for recognizing and rewarding the country’s best productions and theatre-practitioners. Out of the over 400 plays received every year, 10 are nominated to be staged over a week in Delhi and vie for the coveted awards. The Awards Night is awaited across theatre communities in the country, when awards in 13 categories and a Lifetime Achievement Award, are given out.
