Pre-order Items

Pre-order resources will either have a single dispatch date or a date range. Where there is a date range:
  • The earlier date is the best-case scenario – the date by which we aim to dispatch the resource to you, if the resource sails through quality and similar checks.
  • The later date is given to indicate the latest date by which you should expect the resource to be dispatched.

These dispatch dates may occasionally be moved back, in which case we will notify you. Conversely, publications are often delivered earlier than the dates shown.

What do teachers have to say about this resource? (3326)
'This is one of the best resources I have seen from ZigZag. This is a thorough and interesting resource which provides a great deal of detail on the play and its contexts. The resource would prove very useful for a variety of users such as those studying WJEC A Level Literature, AQA A Level Literature B for the Tragedy unit or any specification of Drama for a clear and in depth understanding of Greek theatre. This high quality resource has plenty to offer for students of every level from the weakest to those who will go on to study at degree level. A truly wonderful revision aid for any student. This is a very impressive resource which would prove an excellent purchase for any teacher. A highly desirable piece of work.'D Luckwell, Drama HoD, English & Drama Teacher Independent Reviewer
