The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale Tickets

Haley McGee was on the phone with Visa promising to pay off her bill by having a yard sale, when she realised the only things she could sell were gifts from her ex-boyfriends.

“The cost of love can be high, so why not turn a break-up into cold hard cash? That’s what Haley McGee does in this solo autobiographical show which offers eight items for sale — all gifts from Hayley’s former boyfriends. Asking questions about whether we can put a price on feelings and how much love really costs, this sounds like a hoot as it entwines confession, interviews with Hayley’s ex-boyfriends, and even a consultation with a mathematician to find a formula to calculate the cost of love.”
Review this show

Overview

Inspired by this call, The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale is a hilarious and daring show about the cost of love… or what love costs us.

So: can we turn sentimental value into cold, hard cash? Why does Haley want to – and why now? The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale smashes together personal divulgences, maths, recorded interviews with Haley’s ex-boyfriends, economics and the politics of commerce in a quest to determine what our romantic relationships are actually worth.

This autobiographical work offers eight items “for sale” – all gifts from Haley’s exes – and introduces a brand new mathematical formula (developed with mathematician Melanie Phillips) to calculate the cost of love.

Critic reviews

This is intelligent theatre – deeply felt, consistently hilarious and hypnotically honest – that’s been carefully made

Exeunt

There seems to be no limit to the experience that McGee is willing to draw on, but at no point does it become self indulgence

A Younger Theatre

Excruciatingly funny monologue anchored by powerhouse performance
