She has toured nationally and internationally and has worked with some of Ireland's most exciting and established companies including Barabbas, Macnas, Blue Raincoat Theatre Company, Storytellers and Guna Nua. Her television credits include 'Fair City' and 'The Clinic' for RTE and 'Ri Ra' and 'Aifric' for TG4. Writing credits include co-writer on 'Lady Susan' and 'Tick My Box!' for Inis Theatre and 'Fireworks' for Tall Tales Theatre. Iseult is delighted to be working with the final year students of the BA Performing Arts DKIT.

Production Manager is Martin Cahill who will be no stranger to patrons of An Tain. Previous work includes The Dead School for Nomad and Dancing at Lughnasa at the Mac Anna as well as numerous others at home and abroad.

What the critics said:
They always say the second play is the hardest. But Stella Feehily shows that Duck, which wittily dissected Dublin's ladette culture, was no flash in the pan. Her new play.... 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. The Guardian

..highly amusing and attractive new play..
The Independent

The play hilariously portrays a society fracturing from the top down as individualism runs rampant and relationships are sundered on an erotic whim while everyone affects concern for the situation in Darfur. O Go My Man is a timely satire on the absurdities of celebrity culture where everyone expects a kind of James Bond lifestyle, suffering the disappointments of failing short of this dream benchmark.
