Event Description

Meredydd Barker’s play

introduces us to the power couple

of their day, NHS Founder Aneurin

Bevan (Nye) and the First Arts

Minister Jennie Lee.

We meet the people behind the

public images of the partnership

that became one of the

outstanding political marriages of

the twentieth century.

Following their life from flatmates,

their marriage in 1934, to Nye’s

death in 1960 marking notable

events in their public and private

life along the way including

preparation for the biggest

moments in their careers such as

the launch of the National Health

Service which celebrates its 70th

Anniversary in 2018.

Roedd Aneurin Bevan a Jennie Lee yn

gymrodyr, wedi rhannu fflat, ac wedi eiriol

a brwydro dros sosialaeth; ef o Dredegar,

ac yn un o feincwyr cefn penboeth y Blaid

Lafur, a hithau’n ferch i lowr o Fife, ac yn AS

Sosialaidd cyn bod yn ddigon hen i bleidleisio.

Wedyn, bu priodas; ef mewn cariad angerddol,

a hithau’n ceisio dygymod a charwriaeth arall

oedd newydd ddod i ben. Ill dau’n cael eu

caru a’u casau gan eu cyd-aelodau seneddol;

ef oedd y ‘Bollinger Bolshevik’; hithau ei

Arglwyddes Macbeth, yr angel dywyll ar

ei ysgwydd. Datblygodd eu perthynas

yn ystod blynyddoedd didostur y rhyfel,

drwy anawsterau sefydlu’r GIG, gelyniaeth

fileinig y 1950au, gyda’u cariad yn

aeddfedu a dyfnhau. Dyma stori am

bartneriaeth unigryw - un o briodasau

gwleidyddol mwyaf eithriadol yr

ugeinfed ganrif.
