Stella Feehily 's play O go my Man is a satirical comedy of modern manners set in contemporary Dublin. It was first performed at the Royal Court Theatre Downstairs, London, on 12 January 2006, in a co-production with Out of Joint, and subsequently toured the UK. It was the joint winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for 2006-07.

The play centres on Neil, a maverick television reporter struggling to re-integrate into domestic life in Dublin after returning with a head full of nightmares from an assignment covering the conflict in Darfur, western Sudan. 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?

The play's title, O go my Man, is an anagram of 'monogamy'.

The Out of Joint/Royal Court Theatre production was directed by Max Stafford-Clark with a set design by Es Devlin. It was performed by Denise Gough, Sam Graham, Paul Hickey, Susan Lynch, Aoife McMahon, Gemma Reeves, Mossie Smith and Ewan Stewart (as Neil).
