Question 11

The 1911 novel in which this character appears ends with her best friend having forgotten much about her, postulating that she is likely dead. On stage, traditionally, this character is not played by any actor, but is instead voiced by the musicians. Identify this character, described as one who fixed pots, kettles, and other metalware, whose moodiness was caused by her inability to have more than one emotion at a time.
