By Jay Christopher.
Cast: 7m., 12w. Runaway House is a haven for young people in distress, and it is the setting for this play that deals dramatically and constructively with the growing problem of runaways. It is also the story of Bill and Linda, two young social workers, who work in the program. For them, Runaway House provides a common purpose in life which strengthens the deepening bond between them. This drama exposes the audience to both sides of this tale. The social workers experience anguish as they try to communicate with their young charges. The runaways are rejected and unable to go home, but afraid to be alone. Both worlds collide almost tragically when Linda learns that her own sister has run away from home. Area staging. Two acts. Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes.
