Performance Notes

× Can we turn sentimental value into cold, hard cash?

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.

Also presented as part of Progress are an interactive installation, a financial literacy crash-course in partnership with Generator, and a one-night Broken Hearts Auction in which audience members have gifts from their exes appraised and auctioned off.

With The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale, Haley McGee asks, ‘how can we translate sentimental value into cold, hard cash?
