The Great Extension archiveHassan, a second generation Turk, leads a blissful, if somewhat eccentric bachelor life in London's suburbs. His tastefully decorated house is kept spick and span by his even more tastefully decorated houseboy. The building work on his extension is progressing well despite legal threats from his reactionary neighbour, the very English Mr Brown; and his father's wealth ensures gainful employment does not interfere too much in a life replete with wine, women and self-imposed amnesia. That is until he wakes up one morning to the devastating realisation that something happened the night before that could have the direst consequences for him and his care-free lifestyle; something that could fundamentally transform his very essence; something he... just can't quite remember!
