Last chance to see The Great Extension

HASSAN, a second generation Turk, leads a blissful, if somewhat eccentric, bachelor life in London s suburbs. The building work on his extension is progressing well and his father s wealth ensures gainful employment does not interfere too much in a life

HASSAN, a second generation Turk, leads a blissful, if somewhat eccentric, bachelor life in London's suburbs.

The building work on his extension is progressing well 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 he just can't quite remember!

Like any great farce, events soon spiral out of control as two families with very different Muslim beliefs clash, and insults and accusations start to fly. Throw in a Jewish builder, a transgender Asian houseboy, a politically correct policeman and an Englishman convinced that every hijab hides a terrorist, and things can only go from bad to worse.

This is your last chance to see The Great Extension at the Theatre Royal, Stratford.

Written by Cosh Omar, it closes on Saturday.
