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.
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.
