2,4,6,8, who do we nominate? 9!

District: NIN9

A story about tiny stitched together burlap sacks that are forced to live in a little slum by oppressive forces, namely the Gorton’s Fishermen. And when we say “little slum” we mean little, like 12 feet by 15 feet (your average living room dimensions) with walls 3 feet tall. It’s basically a big crib.

These little burlap sacks, nicknamed Shrimps, all smell like, well, wet burlap and are festooned with found objects like zippers, buttons and fishhooks.

One shrimp, Prawny P. Prawnly, leads the others in rebellion on a quest to find a mythical, mystical, magical haven called Red Lobster.


Let’s see in the last 5 years we’ve had District B-13/District 13, District 9, 9, The Nine, The Nines. All totally different productions and genres but with maddeningly similar titles.

"Hey, District 9's coming out do you want to see it?"
"Didn't we see that last week along with The Nine?"
"We saw District 13."
"What's the difference? And you Netflixed The Nines."
"Not The Nine?"
"No, The Nines?"
"What's the difference?"
"...I'm gonna go play Madden now."
