Weekend planner — theater

Debuting on Broadway in 1980, Edward Albee’s “The Lady from Dubuque” was savaged by the critics (“one of the worst plays about anything, ever” — John Simon) and ran for a mere 12 performances. This very black comedy — in which Death assumes the form of an elegant woman — has fared much better in revival, however, and will be presented as a staged reading on Sunday afternoon as part of Huntington’s North Hall Arts Festival. Directed by playwright Mitch Giannunzio and featuring Lisa Abend (pictured), the performance begins at 2 p.m. and will be followed by a wine-cheese-dessert garden party, with live jazz by saxophonist Charles Neville. Admission to the play is free; $30 at the door for the party. North Hall is at 40 Searle Road, off Route 66, in Huntington. 667-5543, www.northhallhuntington.org
