Kellogg Community College will present five plays in one via its fall production of “All in the Timing,” opening Friday.

“All in the Timing” is a collection of five comedic one-act plays by David Ives. The production will run for six showings the two weekends before Thanksgiving, including at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 9, 10, 16 and 17, and at 3 p.m. Sundays, Nov. 11 and 18, at the Binda Performing Arts Center on campus at 450 North Ave. in Battle Creek.

Tickets are $5 for KCC students and employees and $10 for the general public and can be purchased at the door. The one-act comedies featured include:

  • “Sure Thing,” in which two strangers meet in a coffee shop by chance; fate does everything it can to ensure they wind up together.
  • “Words, Words, Words,” in which three chimpanzees (humans actors in children’s clothing) wreak havoc and ponder their existence while trapped in a laboratory room with three typewriters to see how long it takes at least one of them to write “Hamlet.”
  • “The Universal Language,” in which a conman attempting to make money by teaching a language mostly comprised of gibberish is thrown off by a new student who picks it up much too quickly.
  • “Variations on the Death of Trotsky,” in which Leo Trotsky, the famous Russian political figure, dies repeatedly in the presence of his wife at the pickaxe-wielding hands of their Mexican gardener.
  • “The Philadelphia,” in which two best friends meet for lunch; one is having the worst day ever while the other is experiencing the opposite. A snarky server is less than helpful.

The plays featured in “All in the Timing” include adult language and would be most appropriate for audience members ages 17 and up.
