Неоконченное Дело

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

Неоконченное Дело (The Unfinished Case) is a Soviet play, written by Yakov Borisov [1] and directed by M. Malinin, performed at the Vologda Regional Theatre from 27 december 1963 to june 1964 [2], starring Pavel Budyak as Sherlock Holmes.

According to the characters the play is probably adapted from Arthur Conan Doyle's stories The Adventure of the Yellow Face (Monroe & Effie), The Sign of Four or The Red-Headed League (as Jones may refer to Athelney Jones or Peter Jones) and maybe others because of Professor Moriarty.
