Hi Alec,
This print helps greatly: the same book with the actor's name and unreadable texts in the right upper corner and the same machiya (urban) background as the backdrop for night scenes. The guy in my print seems to be some itinerant performer of small puppet plays perhaps fund raising for temples or shrines whereas your example of the actor Ichimura, might be playing a dorob˘ (thief) based on the shibori towel that he is wearing that I saw from another Kabuki print. Thanks so much,
