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

'dramatic setting' is the definition.
'theatre' can be an answer for 'setting' (thesaurus). I'm unsure of the 'dramatic' bit.

'time pressure on' is the wordplay.
'time' becomes 't' (abbreviation).
'pressure' becomes 'heat' (I've seen this in another clue).
'on' becomes 're' ('on' can be mean 'with reference to').

'in' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for theatre that I've seen before include "Scene of plays" , "Globe, say" , "Where you might find ham" , "within which one may operate" , "Criterion, possibly" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
