theatre

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

This clue could be a double definition.

'cuts made here' is the first definition.
Although both the answer and definition are singular nouns, I cannot understand how one could define the other.

'players work?' is the second definition.
The definition and answer can be both man-made objects as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe they are linked in a way I don't understand?

'where' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for theatre that I've seen before include "war zone" , "eg The Globe" , "The rate (anag.)" , "Location for plays and operations" , "Major area of military activity" .)
