Presented by Haley McGee

A night exploring how human relationships can be captured mathematically.

Join mathematician Melanie Phillips & writer/performer Haley McGee for a post-show nerd out session on the maths in The Ex-Boyfriend Yard Sale.

We will dig into the nitty gritty of the numbers in our “Cost of Love Formula”, running through the formula in detail, and looking at some of the problems and questions Haley and Melanie came up against in crafting it:

How do you capture suffering mathematically?
At what point does a break-up stop being sad and start being funny?
How can the maths account for your rose-tinted glasses?
