The Irish Repertory Theatre next free reading in its New Works Reading Series is O Go My Man, by Stella Feehily.
The reading stars Mia Barron (The Coast of Utopia, The Pain And The Itch), Denis Butkus (The Coast of Utopia, The Caine Mutiny Court Martial), Pamela Gray (Butley, Orange Flower Water), Mattie Hawkinson (A Flea in Her Ear, A Boston Marriage), Roxanna Hope (Frost/Nixon, After The Fall), David
Pittu (LoveMusik, The Coast of Utopia), Amanda Quaid (As You Like It, The Merchant of Venice), and Reg Rogers (The Pain and The Itch, Bach at Leipzig).
In the play, Sarah loves Neil, Ian loves Sarah, Zoe loves Neil, and Neil loves - work. And work is - unusual. Back from Darfur with a head full of nightmares, maverick television journalist Neil takes a hammer to his life. Is it self-preservation or is he just bloody selfish? With a raised eyebrow and sense of the ridiculous, O GO MY MAN questions how love survives amidst the monotony of monogamy, set against a backdrop of the 'new Ireland' - celebrity chefs, 12 kinds of cafe lattes and a thousand Polish immigrants to pour them.
