It’s a kabuki triptych by Kunisada I, here signing „ōju nanajūhachi sai Toyokuni ga“.
The order of the sheets (according to the matching branches of the tree): right sheet is left, left is center, and center is right.
The two actors on the left are Bandō Hikosaburō V and Kawarazaki Gonjūrō I as Shirai Gonpachi and Sasano Kenzo. (The image of the woman I have is to bad to read the name of the actor and the role.) Play is „Tamakushi geakebo no soga“, performed at the Nakamura theatre; date 1/1863, publisher Daikokuya Kichinosuke, carver seal „hori Chō“.
