This thesis explores the emergence of the theatre in England as significantly congruent with the horological evolutions of the late sixteenth to mid-seventeenth centuries. It examines the cultural texture of England's shifting notion of time, and demonstrates that the theatre was not simply an event that occurred within time, but a powerful cultural institution that actively deployed it. Through an exploration of the works of playwrights such as William Shakespeare, Ben Johnson, John Fletcher, Robert Green, Margaret Cavendish, and William Davenant, and an engagement with a range of theoretical paradigms, this thesis resituates early modern England and the theatre in the horological narrative and establishes the theatre as a significant time-keeping institution.
