“Why the hell would anyone ring a doorbell, and when you ask who it is, just stand there breathing?”

A lecturer in Chile.
A study group in the USA.
A torture instructor in Argentina.
A hangman in Mexico.
A woman who won’t stop dancing in Paraguay.

Pablo Manzi’s darkly comic odyssey across the Americas explores whether violence brings us closer together and what it takes to walk past on the other side of the street.

Developed on a residency at the Royal Court in 2017, A Fight Against…marks the English language debut of one of Chile’s most significant new voices. Royal Court Associate (International) Sam Pritchard directs.


The development of A Fight Against… was supported by the British Council.
