“The Last Cyclist” is a play based on a cabaret written in 1944 in the Terezín Concentration Camp by the young Czech playwright, Karel Švenk, who was murdered by the Nazis a year later. This play is a daring, gallows-humor, absurdist allegory that expands on the “Jews and the cyclists” theme, making cyclists the victims of the inmates of a mental asylum who escape and take over the outside world. They hound, oppress, exile or kill everyone who rides a bicycle and anyone who has ever had anything to do with cyclists for many generations back.


The play, in a non-confrontational way, makes clear to today’s audiences that it is the personal responsibility of every human being to fight intolerance, prejudice, bullying and racism.
