The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale
a Haley McGee production
The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale was set to be presented in Toronto in May 2020 by Outside the March and Soulpepper in collaboration with red light district. Then COVID-19 happened. But don’t worry, we’re scheming to bring it back to Toronto as soon as we can. Check back here for updates.
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.
This performance was developed in Camden People’s Theatre’s Starting Blocks scheme in 2017. In August 2017, it won the Wilderness Festival commission. The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale premiered at Camden People’s Theatre in November 2018. Partner venues include Battersea Arts Centre and The Albany with additional support from Arts Council England, The Theatre Centre (Toronto), and Ontario Arts Council (Canada).
