I am by no means an expert on kabuki theatre, but the best clue to the performance is probably the two visible role names next to the portraits of Hanshir˘ and Danjűr˘. If you can decipher these, you may be able to identify the play.
Also, a more precise dating of the print can be helpful. Could you provide a good close-up of the seals next to the signature in the lower right corner? The rectangular one may be a gy˘ji seal suggesting a specific year of publication.
