This is a design by Utagawa Toyokuni I. I believe it depicts actors Onoe Baikō (尾上梅幸) III on the right, and Nakamura Matsue (中村松江) III on the left. Baikō only performed under that name during 1814 and 1815, so, if I'm right, then that pins the date down pretty well. Hopefully one of the resident theatre experts will weigh in if I am off base.

Some other prints by Toyokuni featuring Onoe Baikō here:(hopefully this link works)
