Mike, a glory-seeking English 'Munro Bagger,' is forced to shelter from an unrelenting snowstorm in an abandoned mountain bothy, which he finds occupied by Eleanor, a feisty, foul-mouthed Glaswegian former gentleman's club hostess who is fleeing a violent gangster boyfriend and who attempts to enlist a reluctant Mike as her protector. Their encounter is as stormy as the winter Highland weather that engulfs them, as the two struggle not only to come to terms with one another, but also to lay the ghosts of their troubled pasts. CULRA is a stage play for six actors, with an approximate running time of one hour.
