A PLAY exploring the minds of men forced to fight a senseless war on foreign soil is coming to Teesside this month.

White Men With Weapons, by South African writer Greig Coetzee, follows the fortunes of recruits in the old South African Defence Force.

The play, which has had more than 600 performances in eight different countries, is described as funny, poignant and harrowing.

It will appear at the Arc, in Stockton, on Tuesday, March 22, at 7.30pm.

For more information and tickets call the box office on (01642) 525199.
