Some Sort of a Life

Miriam Karlin

The candid autobiography of Miriam Karlin, a pillar of the British acting establishment who at the same time is a thoroughgoing maverick.

In Some Sort of A Life, Miriam Karlin talks to Jan Sargent about her early life training as an actress in London during the war, the extraordinary origins of her very left-wing politics and absolute commitment to justice. Her passionate views are reflected in her feelings about people, and hold surprising revelations and intimate reflections on her relationships with friends, lovers, colleagues and the theatre world of the last fifty years. 

Miriam Karlin starred in the 1960s ground-breaking TV comedy series The Rag Trade—which also starred Sheila Hancock. Her character’s trademark and catchphrase was blowing a whistle and shouting ‘everybody out!’. The DVD of Series 1 has recently been released by the ABC.
