What happens when fertility becomes a commodity in a fractured society? Oedipus reborn. Sophocles’ classic of classics adapted for the 21st Century by Erik Knudsen into a contemporary tragedy about the unravelling of the most fundamental of relationships in society; that between a father, a mother and a child. Cleft Lip is set in the context of a world where donor eggs and sperm are freely traded as increasing numbers of people are having to resort to fertility treatment as a consequence of social changes, individual decisions and biological imperatives.

Unbeknown to 25 year old Campbell, his older wife, Jaz, donated a fertilised egg to a donor when she was younger and tragedy unfolds as they both come to discover, over a critical three day period, the frightening truth that fate and circumstance have brought them together again.
