Ailments & Ointments: Dr. Codd’s Life in Pembroke, 1847
The Opeongo Readers’ Theatre, a group of literary performers who have been entertaining audiences throughout the area for the past year, will launch a new show this weekend. The free performance, “Ailments & Ointments: Dr. Codd’s Life in Pembroke, 1847,” is based on a young physcian’s private correspondence written 173 years ago and sent home to Norfolk, England. Dr. Codd set up his lone practice of medicine in what would eventually become the city of Pembroke, but back in 1847 it was simply a tiny village called Moffattville.
“Ailments & Ointments: Dr. Codd’s Life in Pembroke, 1847” will be performed at the Pembroke Public Library, 237 Victoria St. at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, January 25th and again at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, January 26th at the old train Station in Barry’s Bay, home of the Opeongo Readers’ Theatre, where they help support The Station Keepers MV, a non-profit corporation set up to perserve and promote local culture and heritage. Admission is free to both shows, but donations to the Pembroke Public Library or The Station Keepers MV are much appreciated.
The show will also be recorded for podcast and available on The Opeongo Line, a free podcast in support of The Station Keepers MV.
