This show follows a young woman mourning her past ambitions and passions, centered around her relationship with her mother. It is laugh out loud funny, and really exciting to see such a talented actress- I’ll definitely be following her journey because she’s very talented!... full review

LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! Easily one of my favorite shows all of Fringe! Ava is hi-la-rious! Lorne Michaels are you reading this??!! I hope so because Ava is so friggin funny and such a gifted writer. Even the premise of someone having a funeral for all their lost hopes and dreams is funny. The execution of this premise was perfection! ... full review

This relatable and heart-warming comedy is smartly performed by the endlessly charming Ava Bunn. Ava's clever use of projections and props, as well as her "funeral for hopes and dreams" framing device effectively reels you in, and reminds you of your own past selves. This show not only invites you mourn the things you used to want to be when you grew up, but it also encourages you not to give up on the real dreams-- the ones that matter. Brava!... full review
ROBERT BAILEY certified reviewer June 14, 2023
The show was comedic gold! Ava Bunn is a terrifically engaging performer who is totally at home on stage. She interacts beautifully with the audience, shares her absurdist perspective through highly physical performance combined with razor-sharp wit, and ultimately brings us to a poignant ending without indulging in a whiff of sentimentality. Professionally produced and enjoyable throughout: the audience loves her!... full review

Gets you in all of the feels. One minute you’ll be laughing your ass off, one minute you’ll be crying (the ending is quite emotional). Ava Bunn is a force to be reckoned with and she will be on SNL one day mark my words. ... full review

It’s hard to find the words when trying to describe Ava & all of her impeccable talent. This show is a testament to not only how absolutely hilarious she is, but truly highlights her mind blowing talent as a performer and a writer. There is never a dull moment with Ava, and there is never a dull moment in this show. I laughed, I cried, and I want to see it again. The audience is constantly laughing as they are enthralled in Ava’s world. There is chaos, there is hilarity, there are touching moments, and so much more. I am so proud of what she has achieved with this show. ... full review
