Your diptych by Toyohara Kunichika depicts the last scene of Act III called 'Uramon no ba' from the famous play 'Kanadehon Chushingura'. The actors and roles are: (left sheet) Iwai Hanshiro VIII as Okaru, and (right sheet) Kawarasaki Sansho (later, Ichikawa Danjuro IX) as Hayano Kanpei. This performance was staged at the Morita-za Theatre in the 5th month of 1873.
