Tit for Tat ends the first part with a resounding triumph of masculine aggressive energy, athletic prowess, and visual acumen. Tit for Tat employs primarily strong, direct, and bound efforts, cleverly utilizing time effort for variety and dynamics. The piece is rich with unexpected body shaping, weight sharing, and highly successful visual choices (both in design and staging). Tit for Tat was both thoughtful and exciting - it is clear why it was an audience favorite.
— Joseph Samuel Wright, Theatre Is Easy

Tit for Tat explores how being watched affects the formation of human relationships. How do we develop and maintain trusting bonds in a state of "prisoner's dilemma," where betrayal appears a safer path than cooperation? We wrestle with these questions through athletic and complex partnering, performed by an all-male cast from the Steps Repertory Ensemble.
