The title cartouche reads "Shinkoki no uchi, Kinkakuji no ba", ("The Temple of the Golden Pavilion scene from Shinkoki") The full name of the play is 'Gion Sairei Shinkoki'. The smaller purple cartouche gives the name of the role and the actor, which are "Kano Motonobu - Nakamura Tsurumatsu". This refers to the actor at the bottom-right. The other actor on the left is not mentioned on this sheet, but it is obviously Ichikawa Danjuro IX as Matsunaga Daizen. Unfortunately, the date cartouche (in yellow) is left blank so I can't tell the date of performance without a lot more research.
