Totally Over You is a sparky comedy exploring celebrity obsession and romantic foolishness. Kitty, Rochelle, Hannah and Sinita break up with their boyfriends, persuaded by a horoscope and the fame-hungry Kitty that it would be better if they only dated celebrities. How else, Kitty argues, will they get themselves the talk shows, clothing brands and hordes of paparazzi that they dream of? The boys decide to trick the girls into thinking that they are on the brink of fame and fortune as a dreamy boy-band. The girls quickly decide to win the boys back, but when they find out the truth, will it be enough for Kitty?

Scenes from Family Life was originally commissioned as part of the National Theatre Connections programmes, as part of a group of plays specifically written for teenagers.
