I've posted an essay exploring 3 recent theatrical versions of ANTIGONE on my blog PUZZLEWIT.  There a few members here who dig the classics - and thought this essay might be of interest to you:

ANTIGONE in the AMERICAS
http://puzzlewit.blogspot.com/2010/09/antigone-in-americas.html

Just as Sophocles reworked aspects of the mythic story of the death of a family, many twentieth & twenty-first century theater artists have reworked and retold this dire struggle of a young girl’s defiance. Three such works being investigated here are Antigona Furiosa (1985) by Argentine playwright Griselda Gambaro, the mono-drama Antigona (2000) by Peruvian performance artist Teresa Ralli, and Antigone Arkhe (2004) by American Latina playwright Caridad Svich.
