Sandra Giorgetti, British Theatre Guide 

Actress, spoken word artist and singer Lotte Rice has a luminescence about her that enhances her stage presence and makes her solo performance in Exactly Like You wholly engaging. For an hour, she seamlessly morphs between the characters that inhabit her story, moving us from gentle pathos to gentle laughter and back again.” http://www.britishtheatreguide.info/reviews/it-s-a-new-dawn-vault-theatre-13948

Laura Kressly, The Play’s The Thing UK 

In Exactly Like You, Lotte Rice tells Abby’s story through a moving, passionate spoken word monologue on losing her way and finding it again… Though Abby’s story isn’t remarkable in itself, the mode of telling it is hugely refreshing.”  - https://theplaysthethinguk.com/2016/08/19/exactly-like-you-edinburgh-festival-fringe/ 

Sarah Richardson, Arts Press
