"The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale", Soulpepper Theatre, Toronto, ON

Gord and I saw “The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale” this afternoon at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts in the Distillery District. 


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 realised 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.

It was a creative use of the stage and props and Haley McGee was committed to her performance. It was interesting to be able to guess the value of the items in her “yard sale” beforehand.
