Mugshot (Germany)


Trust me – A very subjective family story.

This show centers on family members.  Are they siblings, grandparents, cousins? Do they love, trust or hate each other? As  christmas approaches, “Trust me” tells the story of family relationships and the little and big incidents which make up every family’s DNA.  During the course of the evening, the protagonists unveil secrets long hidden, share emotional insights and funny stories. Is what we see true, exaggerated or fictional? And does it even matter?

Claudia Behlendorf, Lena Breuer and Paul Ziehmer are Mugshot. Mugshot is a trio of professional improvisors based in Germany along the Rhine – Germany’s most impressive river. All three share a passion for comedy, big characters, longform and the Reinheitsgebot, which in the end led them to create “Trust me” as the only logical consequence. Claudia specializes in shaking her curly hair in the most impressive ways and meanwhile blowing the audience away with an incredible range of characters, emotions and creativity. Lena is passionate about emotional stories and authentic feelings created in the moment. Lena is also passionate. Fullstop. Paul is well-known for his hilarious sidekicks, his sharp punchlines and his badly performed foreign accents which all sound like Swedish – even if he plays a Russian.
