The program is based in New Delhi and will run from April 2024 to March 2025. Selected Repertory members must make themselves available both online and offline throughout this duration. Sessions will run for a minimum of three hours on weekdays and may become rigorous close to performance days.

Timings: 10 am - 1 pm, Monday - Friday


Selected Repertory members will be given a monthly stipend of INR 10,000/- based on attendance. The stipend will be paid in parts: 30% (INR 3000/-) per month from LTG funds + 70% on approval of the Repertory Grant by the Ministry of Culture.


The audition will be in the form of a monologue video. You can perform any monologue of 3-4 minutes of duration from any of the plays of the following playwrights:

1. Vijay Tendulkar
2. Mohan Rakesh
3. Girish Karnad
4. Dharamveer Bharti

5. Mahesh Elkunchwar

6. William Shakespeare
7. Bertolt Brecht

The monologue choice is gender-neutral. You can choose any monologue that you want to perform irrespective of either your or the character’s gender.

You can perform only in either Hindi or English.

In the video, state your name, play and playwright’s name before starting the monologue.

We recommend you read the play completely and be familiar with the character, context and the larger story behind the monologue. It will add value if you can create an ambience suitable to your character within available resources. Please note that suitable clothes and makeup will enhance your performance.

The judges want to see you perform as you would in a theatrical space, so it would be best not to use camera movements or editing. Place the camera steadily in one place and use the space for creative expression.

As a rule, you cannot be holding a script, the monologue must be memorised and performed.

Once you have made your video, upload it on YouTube.
