Shaira Berg

What would happen if we lived in a world where life-threatening physical wounds were treated as dismissible?

'Gaslight' is a play by Shaira Berg that delves into the devastating psychological impact of sexual assault and the struggle of victims to receive support. Scarlet, a university student in a seemingly loving relationship, is surrounded by toxic friends.

After a traumatic incident, she is plagued by a mysterious expanding physical wound that nobody takes seriously. As she tries to get help, she is met with disbelief, betrayal and apathy. Scarlet's journey highlights the impact of traumatic experiences on mental health, relationships and everyday life.

'Gaslight' is a powerful commentary on society's attitudes towards sexual assault and the importance of believing survivors.
