I believe this is a scene from "Katakiuchi uwasa no Furuichi" 敵討噂古市, performed at the Ichimura-za in 1857.4 and 1857.5.
From right to left:
Kyūshichi nyōbō Otaki 久七女房お瀧 -- played by Ichikawa Kodanji IV
Shōjiki Seibei 正直清兵衛 -- also Ichikawa Kodanji IV
Kuwanaya(?) Kyūshichi 桑名屋久七 -- I think this is the character more commonly referred to as Sakaya Kyūshichi 酒屋久七, and was played by Asao Yoroku II 浅尾与六.
