In Medieval and Tudor England, large halls were used as temporary theatrical spaces in which plays (interludes, disguisings and pagaents) were performed. According to Meg Tycross, "At meal times, the servants would set up a table, known as a board, on trestles on the dais before the lord's seat." (See Meg Tycross, "Theatricality of Medieval English Plays," in The Cambridge Companion to Medieval English Plays, ed. Richard Beadle.)
