Actors Ensemble of Berkeley is a non-profit organization that has produced plays for over fifty years. The founding philosophy of AE is attributed to the principals taught by UC Berkeley Professor Fred Harris and his wife Mary. They taught that Dramatic Action is created by the actor through his imagination and awareness of the interaction in the ensemble relationship with all the other characters in a play. This became the basis of AE’s creative inspiration and the origin of its name.
