KENAN THEATRE AT UNC—Tome, New Mexico, a small town south of Albuquerque, was torn apart in the 1960s when a land grant to 30 families, originally bestowed by Spain's King Philip V, was contested upon the sale of 70 square miles to a development corporation. Performer and playwright KJ Sanchez's father was at the epicenter of the resulting feud. "Half the town thought he was a hero, half thought he was the devil himself," Sanchez wrote in 2013, while crafting a solo show the Chicago Sun-Times called "a riveting account ... of a daughter trying to come to terms with her father (and herself)." Now Sanchez puts on Highway 47 for five days at UNC's Kenan Theatre, courtesy of PlayMakers' PRC² series. 7:30 p.m. Weds.–Sun.; 2 p.m. Sun., $15–$45, 150 Country Club Road, Chapel Hill, 919-962-7529, www.playmakersrep.org.Byron Woods
