    The Inspector builds up dramatic tension by releasing information bit by bit. For example, he shows Arthur birling the photo of Eva smith but does not allow Gerald or eric to look.
    The main part of dramatic tension is when the Inspector is not actually real their jaws drop, and the curtains are drawn.
    You could also say there is tension between Gerald and Sheila- she gives her ring back to him because he has 'slept around' with Eva before they got engaged.

    Also, towards the end when Gerald gives the ring back and Sheila says "not now" (something like that, did my GCSE last year) you could say that you're left to wonder whether she took him back

    I've done character analysis for each person but divided it into 3 sections, at least 5 quotes for each. Background 2.Attitude to Eva 3. Development

    and then themes too so Class, Power, Responsibility and Drama and Tension.
