" A powerful piece that deserves to be seen... The play’s title might lead one to think that the reference is to an exercise handed out to a class, one which unlocks revelations about student as well as teacher. Yet I believe the assignment of the title is a more profound one: to find a way to live in a world where safety is not assured, to deal with the consequences of violence if and when they occur, and to obtain a faith in the power of life, bolstered by friendships, in a world where death is the one constant....I highly recommend seeing The Assignment." — Allen Neuner, OutInJersey.com

"The Assignment... is a celebration of life." — Rob Marzulli, Baristanet.com
