Actors Ensemble of Berkeley is calling for proposals for staged readings and main stage plays for the 2024 calendar year. (Click the read more button for full details on how to present a proposal. Proposals are due on or before November 30, 2023.)
Due to construction delays and the resulting uncertainty of when and if John Hinkle Park would be available, Actors Ensemble is presenting its 2022 outdoor summer show "Fortinbras" at Kensington Amphitheater in Kensington, with no other productions scheduled this summer. The amphitheater is not as accessible by public transportation as we'd like, but if you venture out we promise you a great show in a beautiful location. We'll return to Hinkle Park for our 2023 outdoor summer season.
What's Next in 2022:
- Mothers All, by Katie Tandy with Lauren Rosenfield, directed by Lauren Rosenfield, a special production at the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive, April 16 and 17th, 2022.
- Fortinbras, by Lee Blessing, directed by Michael Cohen, July 2022 at the Kensington Amphitheater.
Coming up in 2023:
- Dragonfly, by Bijan Mofid, directed by Zara Houshmand, a co-production with Darvag Theatre Company, date in 2023 and location TBA.

The whole Actors Ensemble of Berkeley family is immensely proud of the success of "The Imaginary Invalid On YOUR Screen" zoom production. It was a triumph technically, dramatically, and comically. All credit goes to the creative team of Meryn MacDougall (Director/Adapter) and Kaitlin Weinstein (Stage Manager and BRAINS BEHIND IT ALL), for their dogged pursuit and fantastic execution of what turned out to be such a wondrous vision. Bravo! For information on the production click here.
