The Last Cyclist

  • San Diego Mesa College 7250 Mesa College Drive San Diego, CA 92111 United States (map)


The Last Cyclist tells of the inmates in an insane asylum who take over the world. Their dictatorial leader, Ma’am, once had a psychiatrist who stuck needles in her arms. This psychiatrist rode a bicycle, so the former inmates figure that if they can only get rid of all the cyclists in the world, their troubles will be over.
Based on a cabaret written in the Terezin Ghetto in 1944 by Karel Svenk
Reconstructed and re-imagined by Naomi Patz
Directed by Kris Clark
There was an old joke among the Jews living in Europe between the two world wars: First man: The Jews and the cyclist are responsible for all of the problems of the world. Second man: Why the cyclists?
Third man: Why the Jews?

In a world where building a wall and refusing entry to an entire population are being touted as solutions to all of our problems, shouldn't we question the sanity of unfettered prejudice and oppression?
