Show Information

Dyled Eileen portrays Eileen and Trefor Beasley’s protest against their local authority in the 1950s to receive their tax bill in Welsh. During their eight year struggle they refused to pay their debt to the then Rural District Council of Llanelli.

As a result, bit by bit, they watched the bailiffs carry away nearly all of their possessions.

Angharad Tomos’ heartfelt script brings to life this passionate, yet humble and very personal story, that served as a revolutionary example in Saunders Lewis’ famous radio lecture of 1962, The Fate of the Language.
