The artist is Nakai Yoshitaki 中井芳滝 (also known as Utagawa Yoshitaki), here signing with his late-career art name "Sasaki Yoshitaki" 笹木芳瀧.

The design appears to be a depiction of a theatrical performance of the Satsuma Rebellion. For example, at top we see Saigō Takamori 西鄕隆盛 being played by Onoe Tamizō II 尾上多見蔵.

Unfortunately I haven't located any mention online of this design or of this performance.
