Episode Detail: Hobart Shakespeareans - Imagination

“The Hobart Shakespeareans” follows tireless L.A. teacher Rafe Esquith as he challenges his inner-city fifth graders with the Bard. The results are gratifying, and Esquith's class (at Hobart Elementary in central L.A.) has attracted national attention. Indeed, Michael York and Ian McKellen are seen visiting. But for Esquith, who's as charismatic as he is indefatigable, success comes simply by heeding the motto he expects his students to live by as well: “Be nice, work hard.”
