I have written a thesis statement for the theme of responsibility in an inspector calls and wondered if there is anything that would make it better?The theme of responsibility in ‘An Inspector Calls’ is one of the most obvious themes that runs through the entire play, and it develops throughout the whole play. Priestley uses the character of Inspector Goole to explore further into the theme, this is evident because as soon as the Inspector arrives the plays dialogue revolves around the argument of social responsibility. However, the theme is also present in the characters of Mr and Mrs Birling as well as Sheila, with Mr Birling becoming the antithesis to the theme. Priestley clearly wants the audience to focus on responsibility and social responsibility being one of the main factors of a socialist community.

Very very good, as a fan of gcse english, (though didnt pick for a level :/
i like it - something simialr i wrote in my exam for this, in fact i think i got 27/30 for AIC but its very well written.

to be honest i had to search up for the word antithesis so, thats something!
you also managed to link social context [A03] into it, which is also impressive

the only thing i would say is change the opening sentence. its a bit simplistic compared to the rest of the paragraph, and also has the word 'play' repeated which i think is quite unsubtle.

so heres yours:The theme of responsibility in ‘An Inspector Calls’ is one of the most obvious themes that runs through the entire play, and it develops throughout the whole play.

you could have something like this instead:

Responsibillity derives from the nature - to be responsible. Priestley critically challenges the extent of this theme onto the Birling family, exponentially even; to broaden the query of who is to ultimately the scapegoat of this franchise.

or something like that anyway

hope it helps
