In 2016, Tass directed the Ensemble Theatre production of Jane Cafarella's e-baby. It was the Sydney premiere of the play, which was first seen at Melbourne's Chapel Off Chapel theatre in 2015. Tass described the work as "a play for today – the advances in medicine create a new world that allows new possibilities – in e-baby we enter that world and explore the raw truth, the unbridled joy and the paradox of surrogacy through a carefully woven story of love, generosity and a newborn child."< The two actors, Danielle Carter and Gabrielle Scawthorn were described as bringing "such life to their roles" and being "utterly believable – in equal parts loveable and frustrating – [so that] the heartbreak, when it comes, is visceral." The play was also praised for touching "on most of the biological, technical, ethical and legal aspects [of gestational surrogacy] in the play's 95 minutes ... without the loud sound of boxes being ticked."
