From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
The Secret Case of Sherlock Holmes is a Canadian play, written by Craig Sodaro, performed by students at the Steinbach Regional Secondary School Theatre (Steinbach, CA) on 1, 2 and 3 december 2016 (3 performances), starring Troy Friesen as Sherlock Holmes and Devon De Ruyck as Dr. Watson.
Upstart detectives Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are on their first case. Their client, a young H. G. Wells, has hired the novice detectives to find a manuscript by Arthur Conan Doyle. Hiding from their angry landlord, Holmes and Watson duck into Wells's time machine, push a few buttons, and soon find themselves in the 21st century. They end up at the Freudly Institute, where they meet Marilyn Monroe, George Washington, Tarzan, Emily Dickinson, Count Dracula, Lizzie Borden, and Queen Victoria. Actually, these are patients at the institution with grandiose delusions that they are these famous characters, which explains why Holmes is treated like just another patient! And they think Watson is his doctor who's just "playing along"! When the body of an unknown victim is found on the grounds of the institute, Holmes sets out to uncover the clues, while trying to prove that he is the real Sherlock Holmes.
