See it if you like exploring an important topic (gun violence) through individual stories. Both actors are strong and the staging is solid.
Don't see it if you want perfect plotting; there are some gaps. The play is talky and occasionally drags. It has great intentions, though, and is touching.
See it if you want to be moved by believably drawn characters. Both great performers but Kandel is really riveting. gotta say: WOW! Highly recommended
Don't see it if you don't care about stories of loss, regret and redemption.
“Socially relevant and thought-provoking, profoundly heartrending and often funny…Directed with balance and compassion by Weiner, the compelling two-hander considers the issues of guilt, remorse, and second chances, understanding and forgiveness…Profoundly moving performances by Betancourt and Kandel bring emotional and psychological depth and sensitivity to the struggling characters…'The Assignment' is a powerful example of theater that can make a difference."
