    Melvyn Aarons, 77, called police last week after Bank of America told him someone had attempted to open an account from a computer in Islip using his Social Security number. The potential thief, however, entered an old address for Mr. Aarons, which led the bank to decline the application and begin an investigation.

    Members of the public have been invited to read short excerpts from a favorite piece of fiction, poetry, nonfiction, oral history, or family history, though it is not necessary to read in order to attend. Light refreshments will be served.

  • “A Tale to Tell,” a workshop with Helene Patarot, a French actress in residence at the Watermill Center through March 7, will take place Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    Students will combine acting, writing, and directing as they develop stories using elements from their own lives, such as family photographs, diaries and letters, clothes, and other items with personal meaning.

  • The more classically inclined might opt for “La Clarinette Francaise: An Evening in Paris,” a free concert of romantic works by Franck, Devienne, Messager, Poulenc, and Ravel, on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Montauk Library.

  • For those unable to make it to the Big Easy this weekend, Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks and the HooDoo Loungers will headline a Mardi Gras party at Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor on Saturday at 8 p.m.

    Since Mr. Casey formed the Lone Sharks after moving to the East End in 1988, the band’s roots-drenched rock has been a staple of the local music scene and beyond. The band did 150 shows last year, mostly on Long Island but also in Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York City.

  • The John Drew Theater Lab will present a free staged reading of Roger Rueff’s 1992 play, “Hospitality Suite,” on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

    Set in a small hotel room in Wichita during a business convention, the story focuses on two salesmen and a research scientist for a firm that manufactures industrial lubricants. While waiting for a meeting with a C.E.O. they hope will save their company, they air their conflicting ideas about character, salesmanship, honesty, religion, and love, with less than harmonious results.
