Your print shows the actors (from right) Sawamura Tanosuke III as the courtesan Yugiri of the Ogiya House, Suketakaya Takasuke IV as Fujiya Izaemon, and Sawamura Monnosuke as the wife of the proprietor of the Yoshidaya. The scene is called 'Yoshidaya' and it's from the play 'Kuruwa Bunsho' ('Love Letters from the Licensed Quarter'). I cannot find the precise date of the production but it must be between January, 1881 and July, 1883. (Tanosuke succeeded to that name in 1881, and Monnosuke died in 1883.)
