Event Theatre is the recorder which publishes a "tape" (PlaybackInvoker morph) 
of your recording. Clicking this button starts the playback. There no tiles in 
this button to playback but you can create a text script:

    self costume renderedMorph launchPlayback.

and invoke it from the book to start the playback. This will create a morph 
(EventPlaybackSpace) in which the "tape" will be played back.
