Haley McGee was on the phone with Visa, promising to pay off her bill by having a yard sale, when she realized all the things she could sell were gifts from her exes. 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.

The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale smashes together personal divulgences, math, recorded interviews with Haley’s exes and economics in a quest to determine what our romantic relationships are actually worth. This autobiographical show features eight objects — all gifts from Haley’s exes — and introduces audiences to a mathematical formula (created by mathematician Melanie Phillips) for the cost of love. (
