Hello Phrase Finder Forum,
I have been searching for the origin of a phrase that has its roots in theatre. It is "Two boards and a passion", referring to the only thing you need to put on a play. The phrase finders that I have used have not been helpful, and neither have a plethora of sources on Shakespeare (where I thought it may have originated). Does anyone have any suggestions?
