Founded by the British Council in 1979, Chung Ying Theatre Company ('Chung Ying') became an independent non-profit company in 1982. Chung Ying is now one of Hong Kong's leading professional live arts companies, financially supported by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region and in receipt of generous sponsorship from individuals and the commercial sector. Led by Artistic Director Ko Tin Lung, Chung Ying strives to enhance its adventurous core programme of live theatre with quality drama education and outreach programmes. This work has been supported by exciting collaborative relationships with venues including Yuen Long Theatre (2009 - 2012) and Kwai Tsing Theatre (2008 - present).

Chung Ying dedicates itself to producing quality stage productions with an aim to promote theatrical arts, facilitate cultural exchanges and enrich the city’s cultural life. Our productions are full of local characteristics while with an international perspective. Until now, we have toured Macau, Singapore, Australia, Malaysia, Canada, Japan, South Korea, Beijing, Guangzhou, the United States, the United Kingdom and Taiwan. Throughout the 36 years, Chung Ying has staged more than 290 productions, receiving over 100 nominations and 88 awards in the previous 24 Hong Kong Drama Awards.

As the first local theatre company to integrate the example of the UK's “Theatre-in-Education” movement into its work, Chung Ying has hosted around 4,500 schools touring performances, recorded over 630,000 student attendances and won plaudits from the Hong Kong Drama and the Hong Kong Arts Development Awards. Chung Ying's outreach and professional training programme embraces tertiary institutions, primary and secondary schools and community specific organisations throughout the territory.
