"Caster Semenya, the South African runner makes an appearance, too, beautifully played by Moyo Akandé, who puts her 6ft stature to great advantage, towering above the ignorant doctor trying to force her to be gender tested. “I just want to run”, she says. Gender is irrelevant here."
"There’s also a good scene of theatrical engagement and rare clarity where South African athlete Caster Semenya (Moyo Akande) is interrogated about her gender by a doctor."
"...it's hard not to like The Lightning Child. The piece energises the audience with its confrontational cheek and revealing lurches of tone, aided by some winningly droll performances."
