noun

A place where things are stored or gathered together, a collection; also, a type of theatrical presentation in which the theater group presents several works.

Each writer is born with a repertory company in his head. Shakespeare has perhaps 20 players, and Tennessee Williams has about 5, and Samuel Beckett one—and maybe a clone of that one. I have 10 or so, and that’s a lot. As you get older, you become more skillful at casting them.

—Gore Vidal Dallas Times Herald, June 18, 1978
