I am a bilingual (English and Chinese) actor, writer and clown from Hong Kong. I work across continents, writing and performing in theatres and films. I am experienced in devising, physical theatre and comedy.

I tell wild and bold stories from the perspective of the outcasted ones, the odd and funny ones, and I often take political risks in my work with an unhinged sense of humour. My work has been described as ‘punk’, ‘otherworldly and unique’. I studied Drama at the University of Manchester, and trained at École Philippe Gaulier, Paris.

My recent work as a playwright, director and performer, A BOUFFON PLAY ABOUT HONG KONG, 21' finalist Women's Prize for Playwriting, was presented at HOME theatre Manchester. I was a finalist for Independent Creative of the Year by Manchester Culture Awards 2023.

'Crushing insecurity': Hong Kong theatremakers on starting anew in the UK.

Manchester Evening News, 13 February 2023

"Leung delivers an accomplished and assured performance, perfectly capturing Ching's arrogance, and she is utterly devastating in her sorrow at a key moment in the show." 

★★★★ The Understudy on A Game Not Lost, 07 March 2023

"It’s here that Isabella Leung’s phenomenal Romeo first shines. Leung inhabits all the speaking verse with clarity but pitched way beyond that to extremes when it matters and a rubato of softer chidings and repertoire of banter with Mercutio when not suffering. But – and this is crucial – Leung reaches the highest points of lyricism speaking love-sonnets to Ridewood, and at the same time can explode howling in her later “Then I defy you stars” and in a growl of rage both to Tybalt and later, Paris. She outshines in this and her headlong, lyrical disastering all recent Romeos I’ve seen."
