Emma the stage rat
Emma is an angry, wrinkled and grey stage rat. She meets the Moomin family when they are forced to move into Emma’s theatre due to a flood. To begin with, Emma regards the family with disbelief and keeps to herself. She complains about the food they serve, and gets upset when it turns out that they don’t know a thing about theatre. Later she decides to help Moominpappa write a play, which the rest of the family get to perform on stage. At the dress rehearsal, Emma turns surprisingly calm and patient, although nothing goes as it should.
Emma was married to the late Stage Manager Fillyjonk, whose niece is Fillyjonk.
