If you are looking for something fun that the whole family can do together these school holidays, then this is it! Claire Pearson's Battlefield Blues is a unique roving theatre performance that will have you out of your seat and following the performance around the historical and beautiful Abbotsford Convent. Yes, that's right! You actually get to enjoy the sites of the amazing gardens and ornate buildings as well as watch a play at the same time.

Battlefield Blues - Melbourne Fringe Festival
The King & Queen enjoy a moment.

Chess pieces come to life to discover that the all is not well in their beloved kingdom. With the assistance of the very talented jazz playing Narrator Guy, the audience embark on a journey to discover that Queenie is missing and she really likes crackers, the King just wants peace and quiet and Bishop Maddington has his own plans. Will the brave Knight Churny be able to save the day before all is lost?

The Kingdom is in pieces. Who will save the day?
Who will save the day?

Battlefield Blues will suit young and old and its high energy and humour is contagious. Warning! You may find yourself wanting to run with the younger members of the audience at the front to assist in solving the conundrum of the missing Queen (or Queenie as she likes to be called).

The Queen tells a secret.
Queenie reveals all.

Battlefield Blues is part of the fantastic line up of performances in this year's Melbourne Fringe Festival and it is really worth seeing. Tickets are well priced and the show goes for about an hour. Afterwards you can have a nibble at one of the local cafes in the Abbotsford Convent or sit and relax in the gardens.

The Fight
Sword fighting at its best.
