Haley McGee's hilarious and daring show about the cost of love... or what love costs us.

Dates and Times: Tue 20 Nov - Sat 08 Dec, 19:00.

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...

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.

Haley McGee is an internationally acclaimed solo performer, theatre-maker, actor, writer and voiceover artist, originally from Canada, now based in London. Described as “defiantly distinctive” (The Scotsman), she creates funny, gutsy and disarming shows for people who want to feel everything. Her solos have toured to over 35 venues in 11 countries, received 4 & 5-star reviews, enjoyed sold out performances and won awards.

“Brilliant … refreshingly unshowy, vibrantly delivered … McGee does metatextuality with suppleness and confidence.” ★★★★ – The Stage, on Wilderness Festival Preview
