The design is by Kunisada, signing "Gototei Kunisada ga" (五渡亭國貞画). The depicted actor is Iwai Hanshirō V, a celebrated specialist of female roles, but I do not know the role or play. The publisher seal belongs to Iseya Rihei. I would guess this dates to late-1810s or early 1820s, but identifying the performance would resolve that issue with certainty.
