Just to add to what Thomas has already written...

I believe the actors are Ichikawa Ichizō III 市川市蔵 at left, in the role of Miyamoto Musashi 宮本無三四, and Ichikawa Kodanji IV 市川小団次 at the right as Zuiōken 随翁軒.

The play must surely be "Katakiuchi Ganryūjima" 敵討巌流島 -- see this extremely similar scene from an 1853 performance of that play by Kunisada:
