This musical is dedicated to the Loch Ness monster, who started it all so long ago.

In My Friend Nessie, Wilver, a seven-year-old boy, is living with his eccentric grandmother near the sea. He hasn't spoken for two years, since the trauma of his parents' death. Wilver's first words are to Nessie, a sea monster. She comes to him simply because his need is so great.

Wilver's childhood adventure with his great green friend influences his adult life. As a young man planting persimmon trees he sings, First, here's one for Nessie...now, here's one for me.

This story, throughout, embraces the beautiful meaning of ubuntu: I am because you are.

From Scotland to Canada to Siberia to Sweden to the South Pacific, from Lake Champlain to the Chesapeake Bay, wherever an unexplained water-monster has been sighted, the whimsical word is Nessie. Is she our longing for wonder and surprise, the enigma we crave?

My Friend Nessie was first performed on stage in 1978 by the Sandwich Young Peoples' Theatre as a benefit for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Massachusetts Chapter.
