The pinnacle of each year is the performance of a full-length, unabridged play by Shakespeare. Esquith's motto is "Be nice, work hard. There are no shortcuts" and the Hobart Shakespeareans prove that any kid can succeed, and go on the live the American dream
Cry, the beloved country by Alan Paton( Recording )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a new reading of Alan Paton's impassioned novel about a black man's country under white man's law. Set in the troubled and changing South Africa of the 1940s, Cry, the beloved country is the deeply moving story of Stephen Kumalo, a Zulu pastor, and his son, Absalom. Written with keen compassion and understanding, the novel powerfully evokes the experience of a land and a people torn by racial injustice. Paton said of his book: "It is a song of love for one's far distant country." Thus, it is a tale that is passionately African while also being timeless and universal. Remarkable for its lyricism, unforgettable for character and incident, Cry, the beloved country is a work of love and hope, of courage and tragedy, born of the dignity of man
