An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley is a classic GCSE text. And if you do the AQA qualification, you'll get a choice of two questions. On of these is likely to be character based and the other character based. What follows is a quiz based on the sixteen quotes I use with my GCSE classes.

A couple of tips before you go:
1. There really is just one theme.
The play is about social responsibility. It is intended to show us that we have a moral duty to look after each other and to ensure that self-interest is kept in check.
2. The Inspector's final speech.
The Inspector's final speech towards the end of act 2 is soooo important! Here Priestley tells us exactly what the play is about. You can write a paragraph about the Inspector's final speech in almost any theme based question.
