Harry Cronin’s play is about Father Mychal Judge, Chaplain of the NY City Fire Department at the time of 9/11 who was the first recorded victim of the tragic terror attacks on September 11, 2001. Jo Tomalin talks to actor John Tranchitella and author Harry Cronin about My Will & My Life.
“A chaplain of the NY City Fire Department, Father Mychal Judge is remembered by some as “The Saint of 9/11.” He was the first recorded victim of the tragic terror attacks on September 11, 2001. George is a NYC Firefighter, who Mychal had guided out of an alcoholic closet into the light of self acceptance and recovery. George was with Mychal at The World Trade Center on 9/11 when Mychal was killed. Two weeks after 9/11 George tells his story at a weekly meeting of friends in recovery. In real time, George takes the audience on a very human journey of remembrance, recovery and redemption. “We are as sick as our secrets.””
