Here is my best explanation:

'that place in which to see a bit of tragedy' is the definition.
'theatre' can be an answer for 'that place' (I have seen 'Place of entertainment ' mean 'theatre' so perhaps 'place' could also mean 'theatre'). I'm unsure of the rest of the definition.

'that place in which to see a bit of tragedy' is the wordplay.
'that place' becomes 'there' (I've seen this before**).
'in which to see' is an insertion indicator.
'bit of' says to take the initial letters.
The initial letter of 'tragedy' is 't'.
'a'+'t'='at'
'there' placed around 'at' is 'THEATRE'.
