Political humor

Murphy Hall is the place to be on this Monday night. Aside from the tuba consort, University Theatre will present “The Last Cyclist” at 7:30 p.m. at the William Inge Memorial Theatre, Murphy Hall, 1530 Naismith Drive. As funny as it is dangerously political, “The Last Cyclist” captures the absurdity of life under the Nazis as well as the resilient spirit of the artists who originally constructed this production inside the Terezin concentration camp.
