Yes, the signature reads 五渡亭國貞画 ("Gototei Kunisada ga"), a standard Kunisada signature before 1844.

I believe the actor on the left is Segawa Kikunojō V (who used that name 1815-1832), and the one on the right either Ichikawa Monnosuke III or IV. I can't tell you anything about the play or roles; hopefully one of the resident theater experts will weigh in.
