A Fight Against... (Modern Plays) (Paperback)
"He said, 'The day will come when they don't cut our heads off in front of people.' And I asked him, 'Why?' And he said, 'Because we'll cut them off ourselves.'"A lecturer in Chile. A study group in the USA. A guard in the desert. A hangman in Mexico. A woman who won't stop dancing in Peru. Pablo Manzi's darkly comic odyssey across the Americas explores whether violence brings us closer together and what it takes to make a community. A Fight Against... marks the English-language debut of one of Chile's most significant new voices. It was developed on a residency at the Royal Court Theatre, London, where it premiered in December 2021 in the Jerwood Theatre Upstairs.
