Back by popular demand after a sell-out run last autumn, 1623 theatre company's five-star Macbeth returns to the subterranean splendour of Poole's Cavern in Buxton, Derbyshire, next month for two nights only.

"One of the most engaging Shakespeare productions I've ever seen" - Derby Evening Telegraph on Macbeth last year.

Join the three weird sisters as they guide you through the stunning yet eerie underground chambers, where Shakespeare's gothic masterpiece unfolds in all its sinister glory.

Friday 30 and Saturday 31 May.  7.30 p.m. start.  Running-time approximately 2 hours.  Tickets £8 (£6) from Poole's Cavern on 01298 26978.  Booking is essential.

Both performances will take place on promenade through the cavern, so audience members are advised to wear warm clothing and appropriate footwear.

This production was originally supported by Derbyshire County Council.
