In this brief, intense, powerful monologue for a mature actor, it's 1988, and John Rose, who has willed himself to live to be a hundred years old because he promised his beloved sister Jessie he would do so, sits on a fallen tree in the woods by the old Pendragon house where he was born and waits for the panther his sister always warned him about to come and get him.
