The author of A “Kid for Two Farthings”, Wolf Mankowitz, wrote many plays based on his Jewish heritage – some of which he described as a “typically over-long Jewish joke”. He shows a great deal of compassionate fellow feeling and explores themes of love tempered by character frailty.
His plays are witty and wistful; full of human desires and inadequacies. They make you laugh, but mostly they make you smile, often a little wryly.
