The signature is a bit hard to make out, but I believe this is actually Kunisada, signing "Gototei Kunisada ga" (五渡亭国貞画).

The publisher is Tsuruya Kinsuke. This publisher stopped issuing prints in the mid- to late-1820s, so that gives us a rough date.

The actor pictured must therefore be Ichikawa Danjūrō VII, but I can't tell you anything about the role or the play.
