Lindsor Newt and His Real Boy Suit

Institute History

  • 1995 Playwrights Lab


Lindsor Newt and His Real Boy Suit follows Lindsor the Newt and Bun Munchie the Human as they try to save a Wetland in back of the school from being filled in for a bigger baseball diamond. Part of their plan involves Lindsor donning his rubber real boy suit to attend the first grade. The two youngsters are opposed by Principal Richard Ick, Nurse Acura Stab and first grade thug, Billy Bully. They find others, like Toozer Woozer and Ms. Peas the Teacher who Says Please, listening to their cause and maybe in the end helping them. It has many issues and fantastical twists of plot, including the appearance of the 150 foot tall Giant Lindsor. Additionally a Wetland’s Study Guide is available to integrate real wetland biology with the playland biology of the story.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
