Event description
A play based on a cabaret written in 1944 in Terezin Concentration Camp by Karel Svenk, who was murdered by the Nazis a year later.

About this Event

“The Last Cyclist” 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.

Švenk was sent to Auschwitz a few months later and his script was lost forever. The only surviving member of the cast “Jana Sedova” later reconstructed the play from memory.

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.

Reimagined and reconstructed by Naomi Patz.
