Anna Robi & the House of Dogs is a one-act play about the twisted relationship between a bed-bound, guilt-tripping mother and her captive daughter, Anna, in a house overrun by inbred dogs. It's a play about Anna's search for something pure amid pure filth. It's a play about domestics, dogs, and sex.

"For all of its over-the-top crudity and filth-encrusted sexual bravado, this really is a wonderfully bizarre gem." - Reviews Culture and the Media, December 2006.

"Maxine Mellor is an audacious talent with an apparently boundless imagination and will to explore the nooks and crannies of humanity." - Stage Noise, December 2011.
