The article offers the author's insight related to the theatrical production "Ane Satyre of the Thrie Estaitis," by Sir David Lindsay. The author states the survival of documentation and set of banns of two outdoor performances of the play such as one held at Greenside, Calton Hill in Edinburgh, Scotland on August 12, 1554 and another at the Castle Hill in Cupar, Fife in Scotland on June 7, 1552. He says that the play seems to give concern on time of the play's performance and the passing time consequences of a frail human body's needs and desires. He discusses various lines of the play such as one introduced by Cupar Banns which reveals the play's interest in time. He adds that the time of the play fully merges into real-time while the community reasserts alcoholic consumption rituals.
