Exactly Like You

Lost in a lonely city, a young woman conjures up a dialogue with legendary artist, Nina Simone. Blending theatre, spoken word and the songs of Simone, this ambitious piece of storytelling was praised by critics at this year’s Edinburgh Festival. Directed by Fringe First Award-winner Kirsty Patrick Ward and performed by outstanding new talent Lotte Rice, it’s an electrifying one-woman show that is driven by poetry and bubbling with wit.
