GRATITUDE begins as an innocent high school crush before snowballing into a life-changing moment for three coming-of-age teens. It tells the story of 15-year-old Najaf, who attends an exclusive private high school where she becomes infatuated with Drew, the class stud. Torn between her traditional upbringing and family expectations and her new sexual awakening, Najaf, finds herself caught in a web of her own making that promises liberation even as it might simultaneously lead to her undoing. Safdie's play captures youthful stirrings with all their passions, insecurities, and foibles to devastating effect.

"Gratitude is an unflinchingly dark (and darkly funny) exploration of sexual powerplay … A bracingly provocative and ferociously entertaining 75 minutes of theatre." Jim Burke, Montreal Gazette
