Having showcased its productions online for the past two years due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the META this year will return on ground with four award-winning plays from its 15th edition at the Kamani Auditorium here.

"Although the judging process was completed in time for META 2020, we had to award the winners only by means of a virtual ceremony. We are pleased to finally have an on-ground META this year through the presentation of 4 META 2020 award winning plays," said Jay Shah, vice-president, head - cultural outreach, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, in a statement.
