Can you 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 the only 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 calculating the cost of love… or what love costs us.
Written and Performed by Haley McGee, Directed by Mitchell Cushman
