6. “Strangers, Babies”: Twenty years ago three little children, one of them a girl named May, romped into a park and changed their lives forever. Now May is all grown up, and she lives next to another such park but can never shake the terror of what happened that day.

This 90-minute odyssey, beautifully directed by Jon Tracy, made its regional premiere at Berkeley’s Shotgun Players.
