It's an actor print depicting a kabuki scene, signed 'Kunisato ga' (drawn by Kunisato). The artist is Utagawa Kunisato (dates unknown, active till 1858). The round and oval censor seals refer to a publishing date for the 5th month 1857. The small cartouche at the lower right hand corner is the publisher seal of EnshŻya Hikobei.
The red rectangular cartouches near the two actors contain their stage name (actor role) during that performance (kabuki play and actors not further identified).
