Lauren thinks she has it all, until she’s dumped by her boyfriend, Gideon, and dropped by her literary agent, all on the same day. Devastated, Lauren lashes out, making all kinds of mistakes until her friends make her realise the only way she can get over Gideon is to write a book about the Things Not To Do After a Break Up.
Interviewing her friends, including former boyband member Damian, relationship disaster zone Kelly, nice but highly strung Sarina and blokey Jay; she quickly adds to her list. Don’t rant about your ex on Facebook, don’t burn your ex’s favourite clothes or sleep with their best friend. These are just three of the many Things Not To Do After a Break Up.
Directed by Emma Louise, Things Not To Do After a Break Up features a stellar cast including Gil Balfas, Sareena Barnes, Amy Victoria Brooks, Tom Harwood, Tristan Lewis-Upton, Lara Lightfoot and Wayne Tunks.
