Theatre-related phrase help

Posted by Gretel on October 25, 2002

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?

Regards,

Gretel
