The signature (on the right) reads "Kunisada"; this will be Utagawa Kunisada I. The censor seal is a plain 'kiwame' ("approved") seal, so it's before 1842 - I'd _guess_ circa 1815-1820, from the looks of the print.
The names of the two actors (top left) are findable with my "Actors' Names in Japanese Woodblock Theatre Prints" page:
although for the one on the left, you'll have to follow the link from the family page to one of Horst Graebner's pages.
