In the late 1970s, Elizabeth Swados created the musical "Runaways" based on interviews with runaway teens in New York City. Though the play is nearly four decades old, the issues surrounding teen homelessness persist.

Raleigh Little Theatre is partnering with Haven House Services to present the musical, "Runaways," as part of the theater's Teen Summer Conservatory. The play opens Friday and runs through July 26.
