This chapter discusses how Parliament became the so-called Theater of State in the 1620s. It argues that Parliament and the theater constitute structurally analogous configurations of issues and audience in the post-Reformation public sphere. The chapter also considers the activities of Sir John Elliot, who embodied many of the aspects of parliamentary speech in the 1620s.
