Here's what I can propose

The artist is Toyohara Kunichika here signing Kunichika ga (国周画) with Toshidama seal
https://pages.uoregon.edu/jsmacollections/home/artists/kunichika-toyohara-1835-1900-.html

To the right of artists' signature is that of carver Watanabe Eizō (1833-1901) seal hori Ei 彫栄

to the left is the publisher seal of Izutsuya Shōkichi 井筒屋庄吉
- Ref. Marks 24-055/188 (1852-1865)
Link to publisher list
https://www.ukiyoesig.net/indicies/marks.html

Above the signature is the date seal - it's partially blurded but probably 1865, 3rd month

Top left actor Seki Sanjr III (関三十郎) link to information about the role

Unfortunately there is no mention of a play
