What's Funny About Oxbow Lakes?

Wave Length Theatre

School is in session! Thirteen hours, six students, one island - can they weather the storm?

Our show is written, directed, and produced by a Wavelength Theatre - a youth production team based in North London. We unite our passions for theatre to create performances that we hope inspire other young people to chase their dreams. Our light-hearted comedy style creates an intimate feel with our audiences as the students recount their adventure.

'What's Funny About Oxbow Lakes?' is a show exploring themes of friendship through adversity on a school residential trip. In the middle of a geography lesson, a class of six Year 12 students take the audience back to when, on their last day in Scotland, a storm washed their boat out to sea and they were forced to come together to survive 13 hours stranded on a remote island. You may well be wondering, a geography field trip? Really? What's funny about oxbow lakes? Well, get ready to laugh, smile, and maybe even shed a tear, with Mr Atlas' geography class.
