    I'm doing English literature on the 27th May, I'm studying blood brothers and one of the predicted essay questions is the theme of Marilyn Monroe and I don't have enough points on the topic to write a complete essay. So, what can I write about the theme of Marilyn Monroe?

    You should never base your revision solely on predictions as they are literally, predictions so it's never guaranteed they will come up.

    I personally don't see that coming up as the window for that motif (not a theme) is too small. Plus, it's more of an abstract thing as in "explore the importance of references that relate to Marilyn Monroe". That's more A-level analysis than GCSE.

    I would reconsider your revision technique and revise bigger themes instead. Bigger themes are more likely to come up than the minor ones.

    I'm revising literally every theme, and as it is predicted I am revising it also, I did not mean that I was only revising Marilyn Monroe

    at first she represents happiness in te play "well live like kings, like bright young things, like Marilyn Monroe"
    she then goes on to represent sadness "each day I pray, he's okay, not like Marilyn Monroe."
