Write out the quotes in large letters on card (or printed onto A4) and stick them on your wall. Look at them and say them over and over again; usually works when I need to rremember formulas ect

It's knowing the play in general really well rather than just quotes that will get you the marks. I'd try flashcards though, I use them for everything!

well, for me, I would write on the front for instance 'light imagary' and then on the back put a quote about Blanche and the paper lantern. Then I'd pick them at random and try to remember the quote on the back.. and continue until I could remember them all.

STOP!!!!!!!

Providing you're doing Edexcel, which I'm almost sure you are YOU DO NOT NEED TO LEARN QUOTES FROM STREETCAR!!! In the Drama and Poetry paper you can take your texts in with you. IT'S THE PRE-1900 PROSE PAPER FOR WHICH YOU CAN'T TAKE YOUR TEXT IN!!!

Seriously, I have the papers right in front of me!

To reiterate....If you are doing Edexcel the only text you can't take in is your pre-1900 novel.

Doh!

Sorry! What a moron, it'll teach me to read the post properly. I just saw it and thought if she's doing Edexcel she's seriously barking up the wrong tree. Totally my mistake.
