O go my Man
- Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize - 2006-07
A satirical comedy of modern manners set in contemporary Dublin.
Neil is a maverick TV reporter struggling to re-integrate into domesticity. Back from Darfur with a head full of nightmares, he takes a hammer to his life – and his fifteen years of marriage. But is his extra-curricular relationship with Sarah going to mend anything – or is it just that she's new?
Stella Feehily's play O go my Man (the title is an anagram of 'monogamy') was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2006 in a production by Out of Joint Theatre Company. It was the joint winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for 2006-07.

'Combines a sharp look at the chaos of contemporary sexual mores with a wild surreal humour: imagine Closer with a touch of Lewis Carroll and you get the picture... a remarkable play'Guardian
