        Single White Male

Single White Male

Single White Male tells the story of Frank Fadden, gobshite. Coming from a broken home in darkest Leitrim, Frank endures fatherly neglect, GAA difficulty, Jesuit discipline and very poor career advice. He manages to eventually escape to bedsit-land in Dublin, only to find an emissary of Satan in his closet. Soon an extraordinary career within Fianna Fail sees Frank Fadden rise from bedsit-dwelling buffoon to leader of Ireland's foremost political party. Could leadership of the country be next?

Devised by Niall o Sioradain, Frank Smith And John O'Brien. Scripted by Niall o Sioradain
