    According to the plan, when Kevin arrives tomorrow,

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "According to the plan, when Kevin arrives tomorrow, he will sit. After a few minutes of that, Karl will go to the kitchen, and he will complain that he is out of ice. Then he will leave the house to buy ice. Mark will talk to Kevin, and then “the visit” will begin. I will be in the other room, calibrating the equipment with Kelly.", Patrick said.

    Thanks.

    The whole thing is unclear to me.

    Re: According to the plan, when Kevin arrives tomorrow,

    It looks like the script of a drama to me where each action is planned out.

    According to the plan, when Kevin arrives tomorrow, he will sit.
    - I find this sentence strange.

    Dear teechar and tedmc:

    First of all, thanks for your kind answer.

    Patrick is talking to Karl, Mark and Amber. He is telling them about the plan that they will follow when Kevin arrives.

    When Kevin arrive to the apartment, he will sit in a chair, because they know him, and he always sit in specifical chair. Karl will tell a lie. After Karl is out of the scene, Mark will talk to his friend Kevin and then, the visit of the "ghost" will start.

    This is far from clear in the sentence. It suggests a typical action rather than a typical location.
