But now Dumezweni herself has hit back at critics of the play's casting, calling them "ignorant" and "unimaginative".

"It stems from ignorance. They don't want to be a part of the creative act. To say it's not as it was intended is so unimaginative," she told the Evening Standard. "I don't think they understand how theatre works. We're here to heal you, make you smile and whisk you away ... The only question we should ask is 'Are they good?' I've met great actors black and white and I've met bad actors black and white."
