The Silent Ones

by Catherine Castellani

About the Play

Comedy. 8-10 minutes. 5 any gender. Suitable for elementary school and older.

Premiered at Turtle Shell Productions (New York, NY).

The Silent Ones is also available as part of It's Elementary! Twelve Short Plays for Upper Elementary Actors, a collection that may be produced in any order (and with any plays left out).


The Letter K is tired of being known exclusively for words like kangaroo and kickball. K has a sneaky side of knees, knights, and knuckles—a silent secret identity. The Secret Society of Silent Consonants can only be joined by consonants with a special password: a word featuring their letter in its silent form. There's just one problem: it seems there are twenty-one consonants who qualify.
