"Just Dreaming," is a drama directed by Amy Yoder, a UTSA sophomore English major from Hampton, Va. Written by Lidia Plaza, a UTSA freshman humanities major from Denver, the play is about a law student whose life is interrupted by the tragic death of her mother. Even with the support of her father and uncle, her life begins to fall apart. Her dreams become filled with childhood memories, leading to a disturbing conclusion about her past.

"Significant Others" is a comedy written by T.J. Young, a UTSA junior English major from Houston. Directed by Chelsea Harbin, UTSA junior English major from Port Aransas, the play centers on three couples with relationships on the rocks. The couples seek group therapy and all have flashbacks to emotionally charged moments in their lives. The characters include a gold-digging girlfriend, an arrogant starving artist and a flamboyant, closeted boyfriend. The play is the second collaboration of the writer-director team, who produced "Around the Water Cooler" last spring.

Founded in 2006, Bargain Basement Players presents plays written, directed and performed by students. The group seeks student writers, directors and actors for future productions.
