  •     An open rehearsal of “Lost Codes,” a work-in-progress by Ibrahim Quraishi, will be presented next Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Watermill Center, where Mr. Quraishi is currently an artist-in-residence.

        “Lost Codes” reflects Mr. Qurai­­shi’­s interest in the relationship between religious communities and their sacred rituals. To that end, he is said to be immersing himself in the East Hampton Jewish community and the Shaker community, to better understand the dynamics of rituals.

  •     The 10th annual free winter film series at Guild Hall, presented in partnership with the East Hampton Library, kicks off Sunday at 4:30 p.m. with “A Bottle in the Gaza Sea,” the story of a 17-year-old French girl who emigrates to Israel with her family. Distressed by the hatred between Israelis and Palestinians, she writes a letter expressing her feelings and puts it into a bottle that her brother throws into the sea near Gaza. A few weeks later, she receives an email from a young Palestinian boy, and a long-distance friendship develops.

  •     The Hampton Theatre Company in Quogue is also opening a new production next Thursday. “Heroes,” translated from the French and adapted by Tom Stoppard from “The Wind in the Poplars” by Gerald Sibleyras, is set in France in 1959 in an old soldiers’ home, where three World War I veterans fantasize about regaining their freedom, despite their age and limitations.
