"Mangled Beams" is a new play by Native American playwright, Dawn Jamieson (Cayuga), Directed by Christen Omantra Callahan.
Rather than one mans quest for meaning, "Mangled Beams" is a play about A People. It's the first play about the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) high beam walkers involvement in the cleanup at Ground Zero after 9/11. As four men wait for work at the union hall miles from their home and families, they themselves are like mangled beams. Then the unimaginable happens. Unable to turn their backs on the tragedy, they go to work on the search and rescue effort - untangling beams while they reclaim their identity and find personal redemption.
