I don't do those plays (I study Macbeth and An Inspector Calls) but essentially try to learn as much historical context as you can, and for each theme (and character if you can) know 3-5 quotes from the plays, as well as structural analysis. Remember to always go over what the writer's aims were of writing the plays, and talk about writer's choices and the effect of it
